2022 Leadership Symposium

October 31 – November 2, 2022
Sheraton Dallas Hotel

Program Overview

Leading schools through a third pandemic school year and a hostile political climate may very well be the greatest challenge of your career. This moment requires grace and courage as you advocate for your students, teachers, and the profession.

Together as a network, we remain united in a common purpose to build an equitable and prosperous future for all 5.5 million Texas school children. Charles Butt has entrusted our organizations and this incredible network of educational leaders in leading our state toward a brighter future. His values and this charge are what carry us forward and you are what gives us hope.

The 14th annual Leadership Symposium, United by Purpose, will provide leadership development with a strong Covid recovery in mind, learning how to create and sustain a positive school culture, advocacy training–including a call to gather feedback on current accountability systems, and much-needed time for connection and rejuvenation as a network of colleagues. Reunite with us in person in downtown Dallas, for three days of fellowship, dynamic breakout sessions, and dialogues on the current climate. Let us join together, grounded in our shared purpose.

Hotel Accommodations

The Charles Butt Foundation will provide two complimentary nights of hotel accommodations (on October 31 and November 1) to a limited number of attendees who live outside the Dallas area. If you live within 15 miles of the symposium, we respectfully ask that you leave the hotel rooms for alumni traveling from out of town.

Although the Charles Butt Foundation will cover the room and tax charges, guests are responsible for all optional room fees including in-room WiFi, incidentals, room service, parking, etc. You will need to put a credit card on file to reserve your complimentary room. Your credit card will ONLY be charged for any optional services you request or if you fail to cancel by the registration deadline.

To cancel: If you need to cancel your hotel reservation, you must contact the Sheraton before Friday, September 23, 2022. After this date, the Charles Butt Foundation may seek reimbursement for one night’s room and tax.

Neither the hotel nor the Charles Butt Foundation provides shuttle service to and from the airport. Any necessary ground transportation will need to be arranged by the participant prior to their arrival and departure from the symposium.
