Engage, Learn, Grow at NSEA Institute

Leadership Program Gets Rave Reviews

If you seek professional development with a leadership angle, NSEA’s Leadership Institute is the best option in Nebraska!

The three-day Leadership Institute offers expertise and information to early career educators new to Association leadership positions, or who are considering seeking leadership. The cost of rooms and meals are covered by NSEA. Attendees will:

  • Gain leadership skills;
  • Develop new strategies;
  • Network and learn with colleagues and NSEA staff;
  • Explore Association resources;
  • Map a path for the future.

The event will be held June 25-27 at NSEA Headquarters in Lincoln.

The reviews each year always give the Institute excellent marks.

“I am so happy! I am leaving with so much more knowledge. I feel much more comfortable being my local association president now,” was a comment on an evaluation from the 2017 edition of the Institute.

“Leadership Institute helps those members see what’s possible and how many others are right there with them — governance leaders, NSEA staff and colleagues from across the state,” said Randy Gordon, NSEA organizational specialist for collective bargaining.
Gordon speaks from experience.

“I don’t think I’d be where I am today if it weren’t for two building reps who came to my room in my first year of teaching, not just to ask for me to join, but to ask how they could help and how they might get me involved,” he said. “We need to do that across the association, from locals of 20 members to locals with thousands — engaging one member at a time. Leadership Institute can provide that inspiration.”

Training will touch on member rights, organizing, membership and other topics.

Any K-12, Higher Education or Educational Support Professional member who is a local leader or has interest in becoming a local leader may attend.

Those interested should call NSEA Associate Staff member Jan Anderson at 1-800-742-0047, or e-mail: jan.anderson@nsea.org
