52nd Annual Leadership Conference

Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort
9300 Emerald Coast Parkway
Miramar Beach, FL


Panhandle Area Educational Consortium was founded in 1967 on the premise that unified efforts allow school districts to more effectively overcome challenges and achieve more! Devastation to our area, caused by Hurricane Michael, has underscored the power gained through standing strong together. The Panhandle Area Educational Consortium (PAEC) and FloridaLearns Foundation invite all education leaders to come together for the 52nd annual leadership conference at the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, 9300 Emerald Coast Parkway, Miramar Beach, Florida. The conference will begin on the morning of July 23 and end with the afternoon session on July 24, 2019. Registration is $250/person.

Highly esteemed experts, learning leaders and motivators Eric Jensen, Ph.D. and Timothy Shanahan, Ph.D., our featured keynote presenters, will share proven strategies for leading with the brain in mind, leading learning in high-poverty schools, and leading to improve schoolwide literacy.

We look forward to providing another outstanding conference learning experience and to spending time with you and your team members in Miramar Beach in July!
