2023 NEA National Leadership Summit Request for Proposals

The National Education Association is looking for dynamic presenters, trainers and presentations for the annual National Leadership Summit, March 10 – March 12, 2023. We are planning an in-person summit and will announce a location as soon as possible. The theme for the 2023 Summit is Joy, Justice, Excellence: The Strength of Educators. The Brilliance of Students. The Power of Community.

The purpose of the Summit is to develop activist leaders and prepare them with the knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) necessary to lead relevant, thriving associations and to lead in their professions. The National Leadership Summit is designed to support experiential learning that provides opportunities for NEA members and leaders to develop the knowledge and skills articulated in the NEA Leadership Competency Framework.

The Summit is for NEA members and leaders, regardless of experience level, membership type, or profession/career. With that in mind, NEA views a Request for Proposal (RFP) as a solicitation for a training design that directly supports the purpose of the Summit. The proposal must incorporate content from the competency domains and clearly explain how the use of the content will help develop the KSAs outlined in the framework.
