INSPRA's Annual Foundations Conference
February 2, 2018
If your district has a foundation, you will not want to miss INSPRA's Foundations Conference. The theme this year is Finding Your Why: Knowing why you're doing what you do and knowing why public education advocacy -- and fundraising! -- is important and necessary in our communities, our state and our nation.
The conference will feature a keynote address from Mike Barzacchini, Director of Marketing Services for Harper College. Based on your feedback, the keynote will be followed up with three focus sessions with experts, and the Conference will feature a continental breakfast and a networking lunch, giving you the opportunity to connect with other K12 Foundation leaders and communicators. Communications professionals, education foundation directors and board members and superintendents alike continue to find the INSPRA Foundations Conference a valuable planning event.
