Proposal to Present
IASP invites you to submit a proposal for presentation at the Fall Principals’ Conference in Indianapolis Indiana. Take advantage of this opportunity to tell your colleagues what is working in your school and to share your expertise, network, and enhance your professional growth.
By featuring you and your peers as presenters in small group presentations, IASP provides a forum for information exchange, grade-level programs, problem solving, and networking on a statewide level. Proposals are due by July 31, 2020.
On September 18, 2020, our Board of Directors voted for, and instructed us to move forward with planning a “Hybrid” conference model. We will hold “In person” and virtual sessions simultaneously for our members. The in-person conference opportunity will only be one day in person, which is a change in format from previous years.
As a result, we will not have our traditional Exhibit Hall where you have supported our association by renting booth space. In lieu of this, we are going to offer a “Virtual Exhibit Hall” where we would love for you to continue to connect with our membership and make them aware of the valuable products and services that your business or association can provide to our members.
We are in the process of finalizing details in regard to the specific Virtual Platform that we adopt but it will offer an opportunity for you to connect directly with members, schedule “virtual” chats, and offer you the opportunity to follow up with the connections that you make in the process. And, those that are in-person at the conference can also connect virtually with you at any point, not just during the coffee breaks or during the lunch time.
Normally, we have charged $200 for a booth at our Assistant Principals Conference and $500 or $750 for a booth at our Fall Professionals Conference. Due to the change in format, we are reducing those fees to $100 for the Assistant Principal and $250 for the Fall Professionals Conferences.
We value your support for our Association and our Conferences and we want to continue to provide you with access to our membership. Please consider joining us again in November of 2020 and we will look forward to having you in person at our 2021 conferences!
If you are interested in joining us virtually as an exhibitor this November, please email Tim McRoberts, Associate Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org in order to receive more information.
Consider a sponsorship at the Fall Professionals Conference as we can provide several opportunities to you to connect with our membership .

Failure. That’s a word that sinks deep into the pit of our stomach, makes us feel like “less than enough,” and makes even the most confident of people shy away from challenges at times. But why?

Have you ever gazed hungrily at a meal, only to take that first bite and realize it is bland? It’s missing something? It’s plain… ordinary, and unremarkable. The seasonings make all the difference. The ingredients need to compliment one another or you’ll have a plate consisting of only one, exceptionally boring, item. Imagine a plate […]
