NCSM Bold Leadership Summit
Mathematics Leadership: Engaging in the Essential Actions

April 25-27, 2021
St. Louis, Missouri

This will be an event to move Mathematics Leaders beyond defining the issues and problems facing us, toward taking bold actions to improve the mathematics education of our students. It is different than any event NCSM has ever hosted. You will not want to miss it.

We have invited a powerful set of presenters for the event and every participant will hear all of the major speakers. The schedule will be arranged so that participants will be grouped in four categories; coaches, elementary leaders, secondary leaders and district leaders. When registering you will select which group(s) most resonates with your current position. The presenters will provide examples that are targeted to the specific audience.

This summit goes beyond simply listening to speakers. There will be multiple special features including Design time, You do You time, Question and Answer sessions, opportunities for you and your team to share ideas and learning, with an unconference and much more. We will start at 2:00 PM on Sunday, April 25, 2021 with the keynote and close with another closing keynote speaker and end at 4:15 PM on Tuesday April 27, 2021.

The summit is an exclusive event and there is a limit to the number of participants that can attend. We expect that the registration will fill before the event and there will be no onsite registration. We have a reduced rate for bringing a team and a team is as four or more people. You decide on the composition of the team.
