On the road again- C. J. Huff to speak at National School PR luncheon in Baltimore
According to the advertising for the event, Huff is scheduled to speak at a "Special Superintendents' Luncheon," though there is no mention of what the difference is between a "special superintendent" and a regular one.
The Joplin superintendent will "share some of his advocacy experiences and ideas that superintendents may be able to adapt and adopt in their districts. Huff will lead a superintendent-only discussion on what advocacy tactics are working at the local level and what is still needed to build more support for local education programs and educators."
The cost to hear Huff and two other speakers is $249.
The seminar lasts from July 13-16 and those who sign up for the entire package will pay $715, if they pay in advance, $765 if they do not take advantage of the early bird special. If Huff is there for the entire seminar and takes along the district's public relations specialist, the cost is just $1,030 for the two of them. The district can send three for just $1,500 and will only have to pay $175 for each additional person above three.
And as we all have all learned in the six years since C. J. Huff became Joplin R-8 superintendent, you can never have enough PR.
