• Association of Educational Service Districts 2014 Conference
     April 10-12, 2014 • Davenport Hotel, Spokane, WA
    Please join us...
    aesd-logo How appropriate that the theme is Never More Important than Now. I know that Dr. Michael Dunn and his excellent staff have worked diligently for over a year to provide us with a conference that will be interesting, educational and fun.

    I always look forward to networking with my colleagues from across the state. The more you learn about the services we provide for our school districts, the more you realize how important our ESD network is to the educational system of our state.  
    Enjoy the conference. I extend a big THANK YOU to NEWESD 101.

    AESD President
