2023 Fall Leadership Summit

October 1 - 3, 2023 
Saratoga Hilton & Saratoga Springs City Center
Saratoga Springs, NY

Register for the Fall event The Audacity to Lead for ALL where we want to live up to the promise of "All Means All," happening October 1-3, 2023 in Saratoga Springs, NY. 

Join Opening Keynote speaker Dr. Manny Scott, speaker, author, servant-leader and one of the original Freedom Writers, as we focus on ways in which schools can incorporate ideas and new systems into their curriculum and culture and hear his session "The Power of One."

Dr. Scott shares his story and several eye-opening insights of how, through hard work and with the help of others, he went from being an “unreachable” and “unteachable” student to becoming a successful student, husband, father, entrepreneur, and public servant. His message inspires people to become change agents —“Page Turners”— who help others write new, more fulfilling chapters in their lives.

Don't miss out on this opportunity to learn how to reach your students and make school districts more effective for ALL kids. Registration now open.
