A one-day drive-in conference especially for Education Support Professionals (ESP).

The second breakout of the day - "My Job" - will offer topics to help you in your career, specific to your job category. The last breakout of the day is all about you - "My Self" - with sessions on relaxation, social networking, and saving money using MNEA and NEA Member Benefits.
