B.I.G. Forums

    B.I.G. FORUMS

    What’s a B.I.G. Forum? Why should I attend one?

    Why is it worth my time when I have so much to do in the office?

     Best Ideas Group (B.I.G.) Sessions are another opportunity to get together in an informal setting with colleagues in your particular area of school business to talk about solutions to nagging problems that you may be having, discuss new legislation and regulations and how you’ll be complying with them, develop new contacts throughout ASBO MD&DC, and generally learn about how colleagues are meeting the challenges that all of you face as you support the teachers and students in the classroom.

     There is no set agenda. There will be several ‘warm up’ questions that you have suggested prior to the meeting, but the direction of the rest of the conversation is up to you.

     The B.I.G. Forums are a benefit of ASBO Membership. We welcome all of our members to join us.
