Marriott Hotel & Statehouse Convention Center
Little Rock, Arkansas


The 42nd Annual AAEA Summer Conference will be held July 31-August 2, 2017 at the Marriott Hotel & Statehouse Convention Center in Little Rock.  We hope you will register online today to attend Arkansas' largest administrator conference of the year.  The AAEA Summer Conference is a great event filled with excellent keynote speakers - Paul Vitale and Rhonda Crass, informative breakout sessions, constituent board meetings, exhibitors, and plenty of opportunities to network with fellow administrators. We look forward to seeing you - July 31-August 2!!!



We are happy to announce that Paul Vitale will open the 2017 AAEA Summer Conference promoting the conference theme, "Make Today Count." We are looking forward to hearing his dynamic presentation which will motivate you and fill you with optimism.  Paul's enthusiasm is contagious! You will definitely want to make plans to attend the opening general session on Monday, July 31.


Rhonda Crass will highlight the Breakfast General Session on Wednesday morning, August 2.  Rhonda has extensive experience in special education law. As a former teacher and the daughter of retired school administrators, Rhonda has a unique perspective in the field of public school law.  Her legal training and deep experience are enhanced by her awareness of and sensitivity to the effects of local politics and publicity in the representation of school districts. Ms. Crass is a frequently requested speaker on school law topics both statewide and nationally.


All the AAEA constituent associations have done an outstanding job of preparing a wide range of interesting topics for the breakout sessions.  Everyone who attends the summer conference is sure to find several sessions that will peak their interest.  A complete list of breakout sessions and other activities will be included when finalized.
