These are exciting times for the Indiana Association of Public School Superintendents. Our association has a rich history spanning over fifty years, and equally important is that we have an exciting future with a membership committed to improving public education. We are fortune for the executive directors who have helped build our organization. Today we are equipped with leadership rooted in the past, but understanding of our need to push forward by thinking creatively. Our greatest asset is our membership, nearly three hundred strong! Superintendents and leaders across the state make up our organization, and it is up to us as members to continue the great tradition. We need to continue to do good work in our districts, while also reaching out to our colleagues and working with legislatures. I am proud to be part of this profession and proud to work with all of you!
