National Leadership Summits

NEA is committed to enhancing Activist Leaders from all segments of the Association. We want to prepare our leaders with the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to lead a relevant and thriving organization.

You are invited to join us at one of our inaugural Summits. These incredible learning experiences will serve as the entry for your continuous learning journey. Leaders will receive holistic content focused on national and Association-wide issues — as well as individual and organizational needs.

Additionally, these Summits will support a competency-based model of developing great leaders. Competencies serve as a guide for what Association leaders should know and be able to effectively lead within our organization. NEA’s Leadership Development Competencies include:

  • Advocacy
  • Business
  • Communication
  • Governance and Leadership
  • Leading our Professions
  • Organizing

Members of affiliates in the Pacific, West, and Midwest will attend the January 17-19, 2014, “West” Summit. The “East” Summit will occur February 21-23, 2014, for members of affiliates in the Mid Atlantic, Southeast, and Northeast.
