Preconference Workshop - The ABCs of Negotiations with Perry Law Firm
The single biggest part of a school district’s budget is personnel costs. Salaries and benefits alone usually represent around 90% of a district’s total expenses. Therefore, it is absolutely essential that a district understand the negotiation process and legal requirements in order to ensure that these expenses are a reasonable and good use of taxpayer dollars. In this session, we will walk through the negotiation process and offer practical suggestions, including specific items to consider heading into the 2023-2024 negotiations timeline.
5:00 p.m.        
Memorial Stadium and More Tour 
After the Preconference, learn more about your beloved Huskers with a facilities tour. Osborne Athletic Complex (North Stadium) was built in 2006 and includes a beautiful 40’ waterfall, Sullivan art mural, video kiosk, Husker Nation Championship Drive donor display, a peek at the Suh Strength Complex, National Championship and Bowl Trophy displays, and the Nebraska Heisman Room. You will also see the major award winner hallway, Hawks indoor practice facility, and tunnel walk onto the field. Limited to 40 attendees.  First come, first served!
