November 14-17, 2017

The Desmond Hotel & Conference Center
660 Albany Shaker Road, Albany, NY 12211 

Registrations are now being accepted for the School Business Management Workshop to be held at The Desmond in Colonie, November 14-17, 2017. SBMW will address the needs of the school district and BOCES business offices throughout New York State. Click on a strand below to see the classes scheduled specifically for that strand:

BOCES • District Clerk • District Treasurer • Payroll / Personnel • SBO Fiscal

All strands of the workshop will be offered at The Desmond Hotel Albany. Once again, we are using a format to accommodate the five strands. You may see in the schedule that your strand does not have a session at every time slot. This format will allow you to join other strands’ sessions that may be of interest to you or take a break. If you have any questions about this format, please contact NYSASBO. Participants should register for the workshop upon arrival at the The Desmond. For those arriving Tuesday evening, please join us for the Welcome Reception. If you are arriving Wednesday morning, please plan to register early so you are ready for your first session (see schedule). Districts and BOCES are encouraged to send multiple representatives and register early.

In an effort to "go green," printed binders will not be available at this workshop. All meals are à la carte and must be purchased in advance. 

Registration Cost: $199 Member / $249 Non-Member

Keynote Address with Lowell Aplebaum: Building Your Personal Brand 

You're hiring a new employee and given their shining, beautiful resume. When you google them, their LinkedIn doesn’t align with their job history, their Twitter feed has words that would not be welcome in the office setting, and their blog shows no knowledge of grammar, vocabulary, or spell check. Which is the real applicant?

Today, both our digital actions and how we approach networking can speak louder than any words we may choose to use. We have the potential to harness the power of social to build personal brands that will support who we are and what we want to accomplish. Together we will explore and actually practice techniques to evaluate and improve your personal brand and create a strategy of how you and your organization want to be known.

About Lowell: Lowell Aplebaum, CAE is the CEO and Strategy Catalyst of Vista Cova – a company that partners with organizations on strategic visioning and planning, creating stronger stakeholder connections, and reimagining value and engagement.  Lowell frequently provides dynamic sessions to organizations – getting members and volunteers involved through experiential learning approaches. He currently serves as the Chair-Elect for the overseeing commission for the Certified Association Executive certification, and Chaired ASAE’s Task Force on CEO Pathways.  He is the creator of a master-level learning series called Through the CEO Lens and Association Charrette – a co-creation retreat experience.  His work on global efforts for associations has included experience across five continents, hundreds of volunteer groups, and all 50 states in the U.S.
