ESP Conference

The NEA ESP National Conference is the premier professional development opportunity for education support professionals across the nation.

The conference brings together approximately 1,000 educators every year to grow and strengthen the professional excellence of ESP members working in Pre-K to Higher-Ed through Association-convened, educator-led, and student-centered learning experiences. With more than 60 interactive workshops to choose from over the course of four days, participants enhance their knowledge and skills to build community relationships, organize members, advocate for educators, and sustain stronger local associations, helping members excel in their careers and positively impact student success.

I love this conference and the spirit it brings as well as the unity that comes with being in a room filled with education support professionals.
