Come join local, state, federal, government and international peers focusing on secure data to impact learning with the Access 4 Learning (A4L) Community!

Listening to end user conference “pain points”, A4L is partnering with CoSN to hold our meetings at the same locale to streamline your conference planning and help you in securing resources.  Just add another day and a half to your travel plans and hit both!

This event will showcase real-world examples of how schools, states and vendors are overcoming challenges facing the education sector, including data privacy, the use of common standards and adoption strategies.  In addition, we will also be holding a series of international meetings, with members of our global Community in attendance.

Come join your peers at the Student Data Privacy Consortium (SDPC) Meeting! The SDPC event starts with a 'SDPC Social' on Wednesday, April 3 (straight after the CoSN meetings), followed by updates on the Contract Framework, Digital Governance Tool and a workshop on the SDPC Global Education Privacy Standard (GEPS), on Thursday, April 4, 2019 - this event is not to be missed!
