NOTE:: Starting in 2018, the Collaborative Conference for Student Achievement (CCSA) and the Home Base Symposium have merged to become the Connecting Communities of Education Stakeholders Conference (CCES).

The Connecting Communities of Education Stakeholders (CCES) team is looking for exhibitors to share innovative products and ideas with educators from all over the state. Priority will be given to exhibitors that clearly connect with:

  • building professional networks
  • improving professional capacity through evidence-based practices
  • spotlighting innovative practices
  • providing real-word, problem-solving solutions
