As part of our Advocacy role, we have hosted an annual conference for South Dakota educators with the help of a variety of conference partners. We are currently planning for our 19th annual Systems Change Conference scheduled for October 17-19, 2018 in Sioux Falls, SD.
MAPLE has also provided professional development to educators in our role as Service Provider. In past years, we have provided Principal Academies and a variety of NASSP leadership development programs for school leaders and leadership teams in South Dakota. We continue to conduct an annual Aspiring School Leaders Program in conjunction with the South Dakota Department of Education and the School Administrators of South Dakota, both of which are partners in our alliance.
