2016 Midwest PSUG

March 21-23, 2016
Blue Chip Hotel, Michigan City, IN

Join us for our 3rd annual Midwest PowerSchool User Group Conference.   We will be offering over 100 breakout sessions over the three days we are there. We have great PSUG contributors from IN, IL, KS, MI, OH & other states there sharing with you what they have learned over the years.

A PowerSchool User Conference put on BY PowerSchool users from districts all over the Midwest is what you will be a part of when you attend the 2016 PSUG-Midwest Conference.  Attend sessions put on by fellow PowerSchool users that will give you a real world view on how others are using PowerSchool in their districts. Please note: While PowerSchool Group LLC supports our events and will be in attendance at our conference, this is NOT a PowerSchool event. These conferences are put on "BY" PowerSchool users "FOR" PowerSchool users.
