School Leadership Conference

October 15 - 17, 2023

Kalahari Resorts & Conventions in the Poconos


The Pennsylvania Association of School Administrators (PASA) and Pennsylvania School Boards Association (PSBA) host a joint, multiday conference for school leaders from across the commonwealth. Serving and supporting the role of school administrators and school board directors, the programming of the event is designed to inform and inspire. The purpose of the conference is to equip you for the challenges of your education leadership role by bringing learning opportunities, products and service offerings, along with networking, together for a maximized attendee experience. 


Conference provides experiences to learn from and be inspired by colleagues and students.
Apply today to present an educational session or to have your students perform at conference! There are many opportunities to share what you’ve learned in your role and showcase your district’s top student talent.


This year's opening keynote speaker is the author of Mastering Community and Mastering Civility.
Dr. Porath is a visiting faculty member at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, an associate professor at the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University and a consultant.


Want an opportunity to engage the decision makers in Pennsylvania’s public schools?
A significant element of the attendee experience is the exhibit hall, where decision-makers come to find out about the products and services to help equip them for the decisions they’ll be faced with throughout the year.
