Fifteenth Triennial Constitutional Convention

AFSA members from across the nation came together at the National Harbor, minutes away from Washington, D.C., for the AFSA 15th Triennial Constitutional Convention. Attendees experienced three days of interactive workshops, informative panels and engaging speakers. Convention attendees also enjoyed local entertainment, a private opening reception at the National Museum of African American History and Culture, and a tribute ceremony honoring former AFSA president Diann Woodard.

We hope you found the convention to be a valuable and informative experience. As school leaders, you have the power to change the future of education and incorporate what you’ve learned into your community. Thank you to everyone who attended and helped make this year’s convention possible!
