Find out at the MASS/Alliance Summer Convention July 6-10 in Biloxi

We’ve all heard of artificial intelligence, but what does A.I. mean for our schools?

This summer, we’ll look to the stars for answers. The MASS/Alliance Summer Convention will feature big names from the world of education and sports who will share their insights into innovation and leadership—two key factors in improving public education and preparing Mississippi for the future.

Keynote speaker Jerry Almendarez is superintendent of the Santa Ana Unified School District, one of the largest school districts in California. As a former Superintendent of the Year and a 2019 Ted-Ed Innovative Educator, Jerry will talk about reimagining educational leadership for the 21st century.

We’re also welcoming Dan Mullen back to Mississippi to address our convention assembly on July 10. Formerly head football coach for Mississippi State, Dan is currently an analyst for ABC and ESPN and has many leadership and team-building experiences that tie into the work we’re doing to move Mississippi forward.

As always, Convention attendees will benefit from enriching workshops, networking opportunities and an exciting array of vendor exhibits. Follow this link for details and registration:

A.I. and other technologies are transforming public education as we know it, and as education leaders, it’s our job to stay in the know. That’s one of many reasons why your presence is necessary at the MASS/Alliance Summer Convention.

See you at Beau Rivage!
