LEA National Administrators Conference - The Planning Team has come up with a fabulous program including a full morning of interaction with Gregory Love on the topics of Sexual Abuse Awareness and Child Safety.  You might remember that he was featured last year at ALSS.  We also have lined up 16 breakout sessions on a variety of topics.  The registration fee has been set at $275 for three days (the same fee we charged back in 2012).  Registration will be available shortly following the Convocation.
