NEOEA Summer Leadership Conference at Bertram Inn
by Sarah Carver, Chairperson, Summer Leadership Subcommittee
Mark your calendar to attend the 2015 NEOEA Summer Leadership Conference this summer, July 22-23. NEOEA’s Summer Leadership Committee is planning another great conference at the Bertram Inn and Conference Center in Aurora, Ohio. Centrally located for NEOEA members, educators from northeastern Ohio will gather in a relaxed atmosphere for training and networking with other local association leaders and members.
Get started on Wednesday by attending the workshops followed by a delicious dinner. Then, have fun mingling with statewide leaders and fellow conference attendees at our reception. Prior to attending your Thursday morning workshops, enjoy a full breakfast with more workshops are available for you after lunch. The conference will end at 2:30 p.m.
The Bertram Inn has extended their rates to attendees who would like to spend an extra day or two by the pool, play a round of golf at nearby Barrington Club, dine at Bertram’s award-winning Four Diamond restaurant, The Leopard, or visit the popular PAWS sushi bar. Your family may also want to take advantage of their shuttle service to visit the many attractions in the surrounding Aurora area.
First-time attendees to those looking forward to retirement will have a choice of 26 workshops! You will have the option to join roundtables where veteran leaders discuss their perspectives and share their wisdom, or perhaps learn how our associations are run or how to communicate the pro-public education message. Attend training sessions for local treasurers, bargainers, grievance chairs, and much more.
The friends and contacts you make during the social activities are as big a part of the conference as the knowledge gained from the formal sessions. If you are a new leader, a veteran leader facing new challenges, or a member who wants to learn more about the operation of your association, the 2015 Summer Leadership Conference is for you. Find the registration forms at www.neoea.org/SLC/.
The NEOEA Summer Leadership Committee looks forward to seeing you on July 22-23 at the Bertram Inn.
