The 2022 School Safety Summit is less than three weeks away! The nSide office is busy making preparations for an eventful conference that will be a chance for school leaders to connect and brainstorm new ways to help keep schools safe. 

What exactly can attendees expect from Safety Summit 2022? 

nSide is hosting School Safety Summit December 6-7, 2022 in Orange Beach, Alabama. The event will take place at Orange Beach Event Center, with registration opening at 7:30 am each morning, followed by a full schedule of speakers, workshops, and networking opportunities.
