About Leadership 3.0

Save the Dates!

We are excited to announce that we will be returning to the Crowne Plaza Redondo Beach Hotel for the 2016 Lead 3.0 Symposium April 14-16, 2016. Stay tuned for more information on how to submit a proposal, reserve a room and register for this exciting event. The remodel of the hotel lobby space and bar means there will be even more opportunities for learning and networking during the event! We hope to see you there!

About the Symposium

The Leadership 3.0 Symposium is a collaborative effort of the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA), Computer Using Educators, Inc. (CUE), Technology Information Center for Administrative Leadership (TICAL). It is truly “for administrators, by administrators.” Three organizations, one mission – Educational Leadership for the 21st century.

Close to 200 superintendents, principals, and other district leaders attended the inaugural event in 2008, drawing from locations as far-flung as Arkansas, Australia and China.  Despite the economic woes of 2009, attendance remained steady.  Participation grew in 2010 and, in 2011, response was so great we had to cap registration to keep from exceeding the capacity of our meeting space. The 2014 Symposium drew a record 275 participants.  The two-and-a-half day event features keynote presentations, concurrent sessions and several pre-conference workshops and seminars.

One attendee described it as:

…a visionary conference for administrators which supports and celebrates our journey into the future as we seek to educate students for their future.
