The national conference kicked-off this weekend with a welcome or two from our own PSBA President David Hutchinson (pictured left) at the Delegate Assembly and the Opening General Session, leading into some fantastic insights from top keynotes and session presenters. The weekend was chocked full of opportunities for high-level learning, and connecting with a nationwide network of resources and colleagues. Student music performances from Pennsylvania school districts included Bethlehem’s Freedom High School Fife and Drum Corps, Centennial’s William Tennent High School Jazz Ensemble, Cumberland Valley’s Eagle View Middle School Eagle Singers, and Philadelphia’s Hill-Freedman Records DJ Squad of Hill Freedman World Academy High School. The PSBA Lounge offered members a place to meet, connect and take a break from the hustle and bustle of the exhibit hall (pictured right). The Northeast Region Reception was held at the Museum of the American Revolution — outstanding music, traditional Philly fare, and open access to exhibits at the only two-year old museum made for a vibrant event.
