    In 2018, Education Week deemed the shortage of school leadership a global problem. Combined with the lack of graduate level career and tech preparation programs, it is imperative that we focus on the personal and professional development of CTE administrators. Leading the Education Revolution Conference has a clear leadership focus that shifts attendees’ participation from consuming information to producing and problem solving current national, state, and district initiatives. In order to bridge the gap between ideation and implementation, the conference program will deeply dive into leadership and the implementation of second order changes that will revolutionize a student’s CTE experience and the face of career and technical education.

    The Leading the Education Revolution Conference offers unique branding packages and problem-solving sessions designed to get your message in front of key education professionals before, during, and after the conference to create intentional change within your district.
