The Council of Educational Administrative and Supervisory Organizations of Maryland is proud of their long standing tradition of providing quality professional development to educators in our state.  Our conferences have focused on sharing the "Best Practices" for educating our students and developing leadership skills.  This year we are excited to continue our mission of providing powerful professional development through collaboration with professional organizations in our state.  Common Ground 2018, a professional development event for educators in Maryland and beyond, will provide educators engaging opportunities to gain quality information regarding best practices in the areas of leadership, instruction and technology.  It is our goal that every participant leaves this event with strategies to implement in their classroom and school immediately.  CEASOM, in collaboration with professional organizations in Maryland and the Maryland State Department of Education, stand together to bring this professional development consortium to support our educators and leaders in Maryland and the surrounding states.  The Common Ground 2018 professional development event will take place May 2-3, 2018, at the Ocean City Convention Center, Ocean City, Maryland.    Over 70 sessions will be offered and more than 70 exhibitors will be available for conference participants.  Additional information on the Keynote Speaker and sessions will be available soon so check this site frequently for updates!
