ISD’s leadership has decided to postpone this year’s Spring Tech event. Our commitment will always be to the well-being of the ISD community and, as a result, this event will be rescheduled at a later date. We will continue to send new information as it becomes available and will share any updates with the membership as planning continues. All the best to each ISD member during this time.

From Past Spring Tech Event Attendees:

"I wasn't sure if coming to the Tech event a second year in a row would be worth it, but I learned as much this year as I did last year.  It just keeps getting better.” 
“I had to say there were many of the subjects presented that I knew much of the subject matter on.  However, it was presented it such a concise and clear manner that I really want to take the same presentations and share with the rest of our staff.”
“Great event and great presenters with still plenty of time for networking, excellent!”
