The New Jersey School Boards Association will host a Sustainability Leadership Conference on Wednesday, May 24. The conference will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. (registration begins at 8:30 a.m.) at the Conference Center at Mercer, 1200 Old Trenton Rd., West Windsor, NJ 08550.

Sustainability positively impacts the success of New Jersey schools, both academically and financially. Sustainability measures also result in healthier learning environments. More than 250 districts and over 600 schools have registered for the Sustainable Jersey for Schools certification program, signaling the accepted importance of implementing strong sustainability practices.

NJSBA’s Sustainability Leadership Conference will include breakout sessions, a keynote address, and a networking lunch, which will offer participants the opportunity to participate in roundtable discussions on hot topics in green leadership. The day will also include a panel discussion on the top ten essential sustainability questions your green team should ask your facility manager, business administrator, superintendent and board members.

This conference will arm districts with information on best practices and solutions to help promote sustainable leadership.
