It was an amazing conference with wonderful people. I am bursting at the seams with new ideas to introduce and implement at my school.
Thank you for hosting such an inspiring event.”


ASCA thanks its conference sponsors for their support. The sponsorships offset a number of conference-related costs, allowing us to keep our registration rates as low as possible. We couldn’t do this without the generous support of these companies.
