The Education Leaders Fall Conference is shaping up to be a "can't miss" professional development opportunity of 2018 for education leaders. General session speakers include Kim Bearden, co-founder, executive director, and teacher at the Ron Clark Academy, and Dr. Joe Sanfelippo, author, podcaster, and Superintendent of the Fall Creek School District. State superintendent Dr. Tony Smith will also address attendees. Additionally, the very popular IGNITE general session will return, where you'll have an opportunity to hear fast-paced, motivational messages from your peers.  Beyond structured professional development, you can relax and enjoy the company of fellow attendees, whether that's at the Sunday golf tournament, the Sunday night reception at the Lincoln Museum, the Monday "Night of Stars" event, or the brand new 5K run/walk.
