In 2015, ACBSP started a new conference tradition. The Marketing Committee consults with the public school district office in our conference host city to identify a need that ACBSP conference attendees might assist with. Last year, conference attendees, individual members and campuses donated more that 40,000 pencils and approximately $1,300 for the “Pencils for Philly” campaign, benefiting students in the School District of Philadelphia.
Change is at the root of ACBSP’s vision and mission.
At ACBSP, we truly believe that it takes one person
to make a difference.
This year, #ACBSP4Change will benefit the Atlanta Public Schools Back-to-School Bash. The event is an opportunity for all APS students and their families to get the resources they need to be ready for the first day of school at no cost. In addition to providing free health screenings and information on educational resources, more than 50,000 backpacks were distributed last year.
This year, APS has a goal of providing 60,000 backpacks. That’s where you come in. ACBSP has agreed to donate $2,500 to help fund the APS Back-to-School Bash. For every registration to ACBSP Conference 2016, $5 will go toward that fund. If you’d like to donate more, just let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org or 913-339-9356. #ACBSP4Change
