    One great challenge for our members at MASA is to bridge the space between our visions for the future of Minnesota's schools and the realities of today. We live in times of rapid, pervasive change—not just in the technology that affects every part of our lives, but in the fabric of our communities, the expectations of public organizations, the impacts of economic shift, and the interaction of diverse communities locally and globally. As school leaders, we are tasked with preparing students for futures that we cannot dream of. But leaders are learners, and we learn best from one another. It is that collegial support that provides a framework of best practice, demonstrating that “Minnesota Grown means Minnesota Strong.” Join your colleagues this fall and explore the best of leadership practice here in Minnesota!
