    "So You Want To Be A Principal?" is a workshop for individuals interested in learning more about becoming a school principal.  The primary purpose is to assist in the identification and encouragement of talented individuals to become school administrators and provide aspiring principals with an awareness of the comprehensive dimensions and unique characteristics of the job. Seminar participants will have the opportunity to explore the peaks and valleys of day-to-day life as a principal, examine and affirm their own professional talents and interests, and develop a vision for their professional career planning. Small group interaction also provides an opportunity to explore actual "on-the-job" situations and problems and review strategies for handling those that are difficult. The day-long seminar provides a chance for significant participant involvement under the direction of current principals who are also dynamic facilitators.  

    You will find 
    "So You Want To Be A Principal?" well worth your time and effort if you have an interest in learning more about the life of a school principal and career opportunities in educational administration. 

    Topics will include:
    Overview of the principal responsibilities with Q & A time.
    HR issues to consider when working with students/staff/parents.
    Perspectives of rural and suburban patrons/teachers/students.
    ISLLC standards and building a personal vision.
    The change process.
    The importance of data and how to use it.
    Interviewing tips.

    • Tan-Tar-A Conference Center at Margaritaville Lake Resort, Osage Beach, MO

    The current pandemic has presented many challenges for those in the networking business.  However, we know that our members are looking forward to learning together at our annual Leadership Conference.  At our Fall Board Meeting, the MAESP Executive Committee made the decision to move forward in planning an in-person conference, while taking all the necessary precautions to host a safe and socially distant event for our members and supporters.

    Should it be necessary to cancel the conference due to ongoing issues surrounding the pandemic, MAESP will fully refund any funds used to secure your spot in the exhibit hall.  

    The MAESP Leadership Conference will be held February 27 - March 2, 2021 at Tan-Tar-A Conference Center at Margaritaville Lake Resort in Osage Beach, MO.  This conference typically brings together over 500 principals, superintendents, college professors and Missouri State Department of Education representatives from around the state.  However, given the current situation, we expect to draw a smaller crowd this year.

    Exhibit spaces will first be assigned to MAESP sponsors and business associate members. Other assignments will be made on a first-come, first-serve basis.  If you are interested in becoming an MAESP sponsor or business associate member, please contact the MAESP office at 573-638-2460 or maesp@maesp.com.
