INITIATIVESNACAC stays on point by leaving space in the meeting agenda for emerging issues within education. “Each year, we walk a fine line of attempting to cover all necessary educational topics while leaving space for the last-minute hot topics that come up over the summer and at the beginning of the school year,” Burke said. “So we’re currently waiting for something huge to come up.” This year’s meeting will also include a bring-your-own-tech workshop on the show floor.
