I would like to personally invite you to attend our 2019 A4LE Annual Conference of the Northeast Region being held in Boston. Exciting things are happening here in Massachusetts and around the region. School districts are challenging traditional models of education. Designers are creating state-of-the-art facilities to support flexibility, variety, and security. Cities and towns across the region are recognizing the value of well-designed facilities. Our conference this year is titled “Revolutionizing Education
” and will be a time to explore and celebrate the critical and ever-evolving relationship between learning and space.
Highlights for this year’s conference will include a regional furniture exhibition where attendees can see all the latest products that support next generation learning from a wide range of manufactures, school tours as examples of exceptional design, and a keynote address by Michael Dorn – a nationally recognized expert on school safety and security.
In addition to the formal events of the conference, I invite you to enjoy the city and its surroundings. Boston offers a wide range of exciting destinations and activities including the Freedom Trail, the historic downtown, the Seaport District, and the Esplanade. Dine, shop, or take in one of the many nationally recognized museums.
Our time together will be a chance for us to reconnect, to learn from one another, and to experience an exceptional city. I look forward to seeing you there.

Call for Speakers
Join us in Boston, MA, the City of the American Revolution, first in offering public education (Boston Latin), first in offering public parks and subway transportation. You will reconnect with old friends and develop new relationships with industry partners as we share experiences and ideas to be leaders in creating learning environments that foster changes in education.
We have seen rapid changes in our society with advances in technology, concerns about security in our schools, and a greater awareness of the need to accommodate different styles of learning.
There are ongoing debates over issues such as school funding, learning gaps in classrooms, and how to provide welcoming and engaging community schools that are still safe for our children can have a polarizing effect on the community.
Our annual conference brings together key stakeholders who are passionate about learning environments, who want to facilitate a constructive dialogue to meet these challenging issues, but also foster greater changes in education and its delivery.
Please note the sessions are to be educational in nature. Sales, product, or marketing presentations will not be accepted.
