In just seven years, the Summit community has not only increased in size — from 400 attendees at the inaugural conference in 2014 to more than 2,000 registered attendees in 2020 — but it has also grown in thought and practice. The Summit provides for those new to improvement, opportunities to learn about the productive use of improvement principles, networks, and supportive methods and tools; for those already engaged in improvement, opportunities to present their progress in sessions and at poster receptions; and for all attendees, a space for learning about practices that are resulting in measurable improvements and achieving ambitious goals for students.
As the Summit grows each year, one thing remains the same: our unwavering commitment to providing a high-quality experience for attendees. As one Summit attendee put it, “I love how this conference gets better every year, and it’s shocking because it’s already so great … but you still find a way to improve!”
