MNEA Online Training Series 

The Missouri NEA Professional Development Series’ live online format allows you to ask questions and engage with others without having to spend money on travel and lodging. Presentations are ideal for individuals or groups. You can participate anywhere using a computer with an Internet connection. If your computer has a speaker and microphone, that’s all you need. If not, you can call a toll-free number for the audio. If you are interested in a topic, but you aren’t available the date it runs live. Take advantage of the online recording, available for viewing for 30 days following the original session. 

Organizing Tip: Choose at least one session that works with your school dismissal schedule. Invite your members (or all staff if part of your organizing plan) to participate together in the online session. The more notice you can give people, the better. Even if only a few attend, publicizing the event provides your local association visibility. 

More sessions will be added as needed through the year. Some sessions will have a modest fee, but most sessions are free. Only Missouri NEA members can register. 

Please contact or if you have questions, feedback, or a topic you would like to suggest. 

The Online Training program is exclusive to MNEA members.
