‘NSEA University’ to Accept Enrollees Soon

‘All-in-One’ Super Conference will Combine Leadership, Bargaining, Membership, More

A year ago, NSEA’s Leadership Institute was held in June. Membership meetings were held across the state from late July into mid-August.

Bargaining meetings with local association negotiators were dotted across the state in September and October.

Now, in an effort to provide members with more bang for their membership buck, all of those endeavors — and more! — will be combined into NSEA University, a three-day series of sessions at the University of Nebraska’s sparkling new Innovation Campus. The event, NSEA U for short, is planned for Monday evening through Thursday afternoon, July 15-18.

“We are excited about the prospect of what this event will mean for our members,” said NSEA President Jenni Benson. “We are confident that there will be sessions of interest to every leader and every member.”

The event will feature tracks for Leadership Institute invitees, for Higher Education members, for early-in-their-career educators, as well as members of any kind.

Other tracks will offer topics under the five provisions of NSEA’s strategic plan: bargaining, membership, politics, governance and social justice.

Work on programming is now under way. More details will soon be available in the March edition of The Voice, and on the NSEA website.

Benson advised members to do one thing: Save the date.

“This is going to be a great conference,” she said.
