Join us for IGNITE 2023!


Current and future K-12 school leaders


Serving as a school leader can be isolating, and opportunities to truly engage and connect with peers are rare. And that was true even before the pandemic.

Ignite 2023 is the first opportunity for our community to gather at an in-person national school leader conference since 2019.

These past few years have been marked by radical change—to the principalship, to the education landscape, and most importantly, to you and your students’ needs. The job of being a school leader has changed—and so has our conference.

We’re organizing a conference that is tailored to reflect this time of transformation. From peer learning opportunities to interactive experiences, you’ll dive into the challenges and opportunities of leading a school, with a specific focus on creating meaningful connections, amplifying your voices, taking action to strengthen our schools, and elevating our profession.

Ignite 2023 is the premier conference for school leaders, and you’re sure to be inspired. You’ll walk away with actionable practices to expand your leadership skills and continue building the great schools your students and staff deserve.
