WHAT ARE YOU DOING MAY 22-25? We're hoping that you're going to the 64th Annual ASBO MD&DC Spring
Conference in Ocean City to join the hundreds of ASBO members who will be there! The committees
have been working hard to plan a conference that is full of learning opportunities - 48 top-quality,
thought-provoking education sessions (you can review the offerings at www.asbo.org); an expanded
exhibit floor with more opportunities to learn about the latest products and services offered by our
valued business members; dynamic General Session speakers; and networking opportunities to catch
up with colleagues and to meet new ones.
There are some exciting and positive changes this year. You'll have four hotels to choose from: the
Holiday Inn at the corner of 67th Street and the ocean is the Conference Hotel and its new ballroom
will be the site of the Sunday Evening Welcome Gala and the Wednesday morning breakfast session;
the Ocean City Hilton Hotel at 3200 N. Baltimore Avenue; the Holiday Inn at 17th Street and the
Boardwalk; and the Princess Bayside at 4801 Coastal Highway. At the Convention Center, our General
Session speakers, business meetings, and student performers will be in the new Performing Arts
Center on the first floor, right across from the exhibits hall. And, for the first time, ASBO will be providing a mobile conference app to keep you better informed about the conference. Lastly, Phillips
Night Out will be moving to Monday evening and the Dine Around will be on Tuesday night.
We hope to see all of you there for the most affordable, topical professional development around!
Visit www.asbo.org regularly to stay informed about the conference as
more information is made available.

WHY I BELONG TO ASBO
Our organization provides the unique opportunity to receive critical professional development for our
industry that is available nowhere else. This recognizes and affirms that the quiet, "business" side of education
is just as much of a calling or profession as the "teaching" side. It allows us rare opportunities to back away
from the trees to see and reflect on the forest. ASBO is the single best forum, sounding board, professional
coaching vehicle and microphone upon which we share challenges and successes with our peers to maximize
the effectiveness of our efforts to support and improve results for our students and funding authorities.
