Join Us for the 2018 SBMW!

November 6-9, 2018

Registrations are now being accepted for the School Business Management Workshop to be held at The Desmond in Albany, November 6-9, 2018. SBMW will address the needs of school district and BOCES business offices throughout New York State.

All strands of the workshop will be offered at The Desmond Hotel Albany. Once again, we are using a format to accommodate the five strands. You may see in the schedule that your strand does not have a session at every time slot. This format will allow you to join other strands’ sessions that may be of interest to you or take a break. If you have any questions about this format, please contact ASBO. Registered attendees should check in at ASBO registration upon arrival at the The Desmond. If you are arriving Wednesday morning, please plan to check in early so you are ready for your first session (see schedule). Districts and BOCES are encouraged to send multiple representatives and register early.

Registration Cost: $199 Member / $249 Non-Member

Meals may be purchased at an additional cost during registration. See Meals for more information.
