On September 17 & 18, BoardDocs, the paperless governance pioneer, hosted its 7th Annual eGovernance Workshop in Park City, Utah. More than 100 administrators, superintendents, board members and executive directors from school districts throughout the United States gathered to learn how their processes can be more effective by leveraging BoardDocs solutions. Benefits also include cost savings, dramatic increases in efficiency and greater transparency with the public.
Attendees were fortunate to have Kevin Carroll as the Workshop’s featured speaker. Kevin, who worked as a "human catalyst" for Nike Corporation and was the inspiration behind the Lance Armstrong "LIVESTRONG" wristband phenomenon, travels the world sharing his philosophy: Rules of the Red Rubber Ball. That philosophy is drawn from Kevin’s childhood experiences on the playground – particularly the memory of how an abandoned rubber ball catapulted him into a lifelong love of sports and play.
“Kevin’s insights were not only refreshing, but also inspiring. Blending creativity and practicality, he gave attendees a new outlook to approach all facets of their life,” said Workshop attendee Amanda Levy, Ohio School Boards Association. “Kevin Carroll was a phenomenal speaker and his presentation set the tone for a great conference.”
Workshop attendees were also the first to see a “sneak preview” of the latest version of BoardDocs, which utilizes Web 2.0 technology to allow subscribers to manage and customize their paperless agenda packets with unprecedented ease and an advanced feature set. The all new BoardDocs will launch October 28 at the NSBA Technology + Learning Conference in Denver, CO.
"Prior to the conference, I was excited about the opportunities that BoardDocs could provide our school district,” said Cheryl Domby, Supervisor, Treasurers Office, Toledo Public Schools. “After attending the Workshop and talking to the BoardDocs staff and current subscribers, it became obvious that those opportunities can soon become a reality for Toledo Public Schools. I can’t wait for BoardDocs to take us to the next level of efficiency, organization and increased transparency for our district and community."
