This year’s conference offers opportunities for both NB Candidates
and currently certified NBCTs. National Board Certification offers educators enriching personal and professional growth.
We invite you to “dig for gold” by digging into the National Board process and your own practice.
Initial & Advanced Candidate Sessions:
This FULL day conference will include sessions for Initial and Advanced Candidates on unpacking
the National Board Standards, getting organized, and writing strategies, as well as sessions addressing Component 2 (Differentiation
in Instruction), Component 3 (Teaching Practice & Learning Environment), Component 4 (Effective & Reflective Practitioner).
Each session is designed to help candidates prepare to sift through National Board standards & guidelines as well as their
own materials as they reflect on their practice. All participants will have the opportunity to network with colleagues, current
NBCTs and Candidate Support Providers. Most sessions repeat during the conference allowing participants to select
the sessions which best suit their needs*. FULL DAY only: Registration includes continental breakfast
& buffet luncheon. SEVA Members $70; Non-Members $75
For current NBCTs and Renewal Candidates**:
It’s time to dig deep and see how your National Board “gold” continues to enrich you personally & professionally.
Sessions offered for current NBCTs this year include training for those interested in supporting current candidates as an
NBCT Facilitator, insights on how to grow your professional NBCT network, strategies for using Google Docs creatively in the
classroom to impact student learning, and information about the process to renew your National Board Certification*. FULL

*Sessions will be scheduled based on number of registrants
requesting each topic. Some sessions may be offered multiple times, and other sessions may be omitted from the program
if there is not sufficient interest.
If you achieved your National Board Certification in 2008 and 2009, this is your year to reflect and renew! (The 201718 school
year is the 1st opportunity for 2009 NBCTs and the 2nd opportunity for 2008 NBCTs to renew.) This session will
review the components of the Profile of Professional Growth—the renewal process for all NBCTs certified prior to 2010.
Even if it’s not quite your time to renew, consider joining us for the information to help you plan ahead.
