“You are not a leader until you have produced another leader who can produce another leader.”
Like any member organization, the health and vitality of KEA depend on the engagement of its members and on the strength and vision of its leaders. That is especially true at the local level, where good leaders know that the most important thing they will ever do is to identify and prepare their replacements.
That’s why we are offering the 2017 Local Presidents + Next Generation Leaders training event July 16-17-18 at the Clarion Hotel, 1950 Newtown Pike, in Lexington.
2017 Local Presidents + Next Generation Leaders combines the best of our highly successful Local Presidents Training and Emerging Leaders Training. Everything about this conference is designed to help you build and maintain the strongest possible local association for your members—one that will thrive and succeed long after you retire.
KEA President Stephanie Winkler and Vice President Eddie Campbell urge ALL local presidents to attend this training, and to bring with you another local member who has the interest, vision and energy necessary to be the “next one up” in your local’s leadership.
KEA will provide two nights’ lodging on the 16th and 17th for all participants, as well as breakfast and lunch on the 17th and 18th. KEA will not pay mileage or evening meals to participants, but is encouraging locals and districts associations to do so.
Training components and sessions will be based on the NEA Leadership Competencies of: Advocacy, Business, Communication, Governance and Leadership, Leading our Professions, and Organizing. These competencies are a vehicle to support continuous learning and are intended to be broadly applicable across the organization for KEA and its members. The competencies support the notion that leadership development is a journey, not an event. This conference will provide you with some of the tools necessary to create and maintain strong locals. You won’t want to miss it!
