Members May Self-Nominate for 2020 Leadership Institute

One of the great benefits of Association membership is NSEA’s Leadership Institute, a once-a-year, one-of-a-kind opportunity for educators.

The four-day program allows select members to learn about their leadership style, hone leadership skills, utilize the NSEA organizational specialist assigned to the member’s school, understand communications strategies, and to understand and access the resources, services and programs offered by the NSEA.

For the first time, NSEA members may self-nominate for consideration as a Leadership Institute participant. There will be a limit of 30 participants in the 2020 class.

The 33rd edition of Leadership Institute is scheduled for July 13-16, 2020. It will be held in conjunction with NSEA University at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Innovation Campus.  If you seek professional development along with a leadership angle, NSEA’s Leadership Institute is the best option in Nebraska. Training will touch on member rights, organizing, membership and other topics.

“Leadership Institute is always an exciting three days,” said NSEA Organizational Specialist Marlene Wehrbein. “Combining it with NSEA University and all the possibilities that program holds will make the Institute even more memorable.”

The expectation is that each participant will take part in the entire Institute, including group meals each evening. The cost of rooms, meals and parking are covered.

Being nominated does not guarantee selection, said Wehrbein.

“When selecting participants, the committee attempts to gather a class that is diverse in age, location across the state, size of school district, ethnicity and other factors,” she said.

Any K-12, Higher Education or Educational Support Professional member who is interested in growing their leadership skills may attend. Those interested should contact NSEA associate staff member Jan Anderson at 1-800-742-0047.
