Change in ownership for special-needs conference

Posted on March 8, 2012

TORRANCE, Calif. — STN Media Group and School Transportation News have acquired the National Conference and Exhibition on Transporting Students with Disabilities & Preschoolers from Edupro Group.

STN said it assumes full control of the conference at the conclusion of this year's event, in Orlando, Fla., March 9-14.

Roseann Schwaderer, owner of Edupro Group and founder and organizer of the conference, is to remain involved with the event through the end of December 2013 as conference chair and as an STN advisor.

The dates and location of next year's show have yet to be determined.

At last year’s Transporting Students with Disabilities & Preschoolers conference in Kansas City, Mo., Schwaderer was recognized by the National Association for Pupil Transportation in honor of the event’s 20th anniversary.
