Knowledge Collaboration through Creativity 


53rd Annual NAASS National Conference



We have selected  "Knowledge Collaboration through Creativity” as the theme of our 2016 Annual Conference.  Summer session leaders know that the qualities of collaboration and creativity contribute to making summer programs successful. These principals guide us in our work and will guide us in our conference as well. We hope you will consider joining us this fall in Kansas City to add you voice to the conversation.
