2012 Sustainable Schools Conference

Salem - Salem Convention Center and The Grand Hotel  -  200 Commercial St SE, Salem OR 97301  -  877-540-7800    [Map]

Conference Cancelled

Because so many OSBA members were unable to fit the 2012 Sustainable Schools Conference into their already crowded winter schedules, we have chosen to cancel the planned event on Feb. 1-2.

We hope to hold a series of webinars over the next few months that cover the topics we had planned to cover in the February conference. The webinar option should ease the strain on already tight travel budgets for district, while still conveying information that’s important to your work.
