Missouri NEA’s Summer Academy continues in 2017 with a renewed focus on helping build strong locals with an emphasis on team building through strategic planning. This year, locals are encouraged to bring the home team. Local teams will move through the program together exploring workshops based on NEA’s Leadership Competencies. Locals are encouraged to bring their local president, treasurer, membership chair, bargaining chair and a new leader. Larger local teams are always welcome!

Who is invited?

All locals are invited to participate and bring a team. Locals are encouraged to bring their local president, treasurer, membership chair, bargaining chair, and a new leader. More are always welcome!

How much does it cost?

Registration is $25 per participant with the entire amount refunded at the end of the first full day of participation.

With two Summer Academies, many locals will not need an overnight stay to participate. A block of hotel rooms will be held at a conference rate for locals to purchase if you do choose to stay at the Summer Academy site. Information about the hotel and rates will be available on the online registration site.

Locals needing financial assistance in order to participate can apply for a Summer Academy Organizing Grant with the help of your UniServ Director. All grants should be turned in to your respective Field Manager: Chastity Young - Field Manager West or Patrick Layden - Field Manager East. The grant form is available from your UD or from your regional office.

Sessions Focused on What Your Local Needs

Each of the breakout sessions will offer different tracks based on what you determine your local needs most. When you register as a local, your team will review the course descriptions and decide which track is best designed for you.

Time to Work Together

Except for the leadership roles sessions, your local is encouraged to attend all sessions as a team. Time will be built into each session to take what you have learned and build your local plan of action. At the end of the Academy, you will have time to create your strategic plan for the year ahead.

Time for Networking & Fun!

Summer Academy is always a great time to meet fellow leaders across the state and reconnect with friends. From break time to the evening social acactivity, participants will have ample time to expand their network of colleagues who are facing the same day to day challenges.
