2018 PAIU Conference: "PA Intermediate Units: Unique and United"

Pennsylvania's twenty-nine intermediate units operate and serve their regions in very distinctive ways, uniting as one statewide association - PAIU - to help ensure that the Commonwealth's schools and students benefit from their capacity and expertise.  While staff at each IU may have very different roles and experiences, they must continue to explore innovative ways to come together and serve their  customers with excellence.

The 2018 PAIU Conference, focusing on the theme of "Unique + United," will offer engaging speakers, professional development in all job-alike categories, team building and networking opportunities to over 300 senior-level Pennsylvania IU leaders.
