The National Education Association (NEA) is looking for dynamic presentations for its annual National Leadership Summit, March 16 – March 18, 2018, in Chicago, Illinois. The Leadership Summit is designed to empower NEA members and leaders to develop the knowledge and skills articulated in NEA's leadership competency framework. The Leadership Summit is intended for all NEA leaders, regardless of experience level, membership type or educator category.

Our theme this year is: Uniting Our Members and The Nation: Empowering Leaders, Educating Students, Strengthening Communities. We are seeking proposals for interactive sessions, workshops, and other formats that allow participants to explore the most pressing issues facing public education, professional education associations, and the labor movement, to share sustainable solutions, and to return to their school districts, worksites and affiliates with new ideas, skill sets and a plan of action. The sessions should be high energy, intense and provide a different kind of experience for our NEA leaders.

We hope you plan on being a part of the 2018 NEA National Leadership Summit.
