We bring education leaders together within their states and across states to interact, collaborate and learn from each other. 


Our live virtual experiences bring together education policymakers from across the nation to network, share, learn and collaborate around specific education policy topics. Each session is designed to highlight relevant and timely education policy issues with solution-driven recommendations. Like so many of our popular in-person events, our virtual engagements are led by Education Commission of the States staff and include topic experts, state leaders and our partners. Registration is complimentary and open to our colleagues in state education policy.
