After careful monitoring of the COVID-19 health crisis, the New Jersey School Boards Association has made the very difficult decision to not hold the in-person Workshop 2020 conference, which had been scheduled for Oct. 19-22 at the Atlantic City Convention Center.
Several factors contributed to this decision:
The situation, at best, is uncertain.
Nonetheless, we remain committed to meeting the professional development needs of school leaders.
NJSBA is excited to announce that we are bringing the heart of Workshop—the training, collaboration, resources, and networking—to a virtual conference, to take place on October 20-22. The carbon-neutral virtual event will offer a wide variety of training, opportunities for professional development credit, highly engaging 3D virtual environments, special events, compelling speakers, and an interactive exhibit floor. More information will be shared in the coming months.
To ensure that the session style and format work for a virtual audience, we will also issue a new call for proposals. If you previously proposed a presentation for Workshop, we encourage you to resubmit it for the new event.
NJSBA is grateful for your commitment to the success of Workshop, and we look forward to your participation in our exciting virtual conference, October 20-22. Support for New Jersey’s local boards of education, school districts, and public school students remains our top priority.
We wish you continued health and safety.
