Mingle and Networking with Education Leaders

Join Waterford and education industry leaders from around the country. Sit down and connect with superintendents, policy makers, influencers, and education thought leaders over this exclusive three-day summit event.

Hear the Latest from the Education Industry

Speakers and presenters will be discussing the current state of education, new trends, best practices, and takeaways to implement in your district and schools. Share your insights and experiences with your peers and learn what they’re doing to improve the condition and lives of those whom they lead.

Experience a World-Renown Mountain Resort

Utah is known for its breathtaking scenery, including the stunning mountains of the Wasatch Front. Waterford’s 2019 Summit will be held at Snowbird Resort up Little Cottonwood Canyon, about a half hour from Salt Lake City. Famous for its skiing, Snowbird offers activities and beautiful surroundings year-round, including colorful fall foliage to accent Oktoberfest during your visit.

Executive Leadership Training from John Bates

John Bates teaches public speaking and leadership communication to some of the most powerful executives in the world—and some who leave this world! His clientele includes NASA, T-Mobile, JAVA, IBM, Muse, and Johnson & Johnson. Join us for a two-hour leadership training with John as he reveals his secrets and tips.



There will be an all-day beverage station available.

We will coordinate transportation with the hotel for you and cover that round-trip expense. However, if you choose to do your own transportation, you will be responsible for covering the cost.

You are welcome to bring a guest at your own expense. If the guest will only be accompanying you to the resort and not attending the conference, they will be responsible for all expenses. If they will be attending the event, Waterford.org will cover food and hotel. 

You are welcome to check in early or stay late. However, any nights that are in addition to the conference will be billed directly to you.

Your stay at the Snowbird Cliff Lodge will include complimentary access to The Cliff Spa, which includes a fitness center. From massage treatments to yoga classes to the exclusive rooftop pool, rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit. Spa treatments are an additional charge.

Attendees will be taking a tram ride up the mountain Tuesday for an unforgettable keynote lunch at the Summit Restaurant with spectacular views of the valley below, and we will be having a delicious dinner at the Aeire Monday evening.

For guests arriving Sunday, Snowbird’s 47th Annual Oktoberfest will also be going on, taking place on weekends with music, entertainment, and biergarten with local breweries.
