Justify Your Attendance to the FLACADA Conference!

We know that travel and training budgets are tight, and it can be difficult to get approval to attend events and conferences. We are here to help. Here are some tips on how to communicate to your supervisor why you should attend the 2017 FLACADA Conference.

  • Download the FLACADA justification letter that you can personalize and send to your supervisor.
  • Do not leave it at the conference — share your wealth! Let your supervisor know that you will commit to a post-conference briefing for staff where you’ll highlight what you’ve learned from the conference.  Tie your learnings to your school’s long-term and short-term goals or strategic plan – it’s important to show your supervisor that the conference was not just good in theory but that it gave you real, actionable solutions that you can implement at your school.
  • Justify the cost of the conference by comparing it to other educational courses and offerings. Almost any alternative will prove to be more time consuming and expensive.
