Volunteering with NAESP, the NAESP App, Career Center, and more.
Thank You, NAESP Volunteers!
Membership in NAESP opens the door for school leaders to volunteer on committees and advisory boards that help guide the association’s vision and mission. Members—principals and assistant principals—are in schools every day, working toward success for the entire school community while overcoming challenges that only school leaders know how to tackle. Who better to ensure that NAESP resources, programs, and events are hitting the mark for the evolving school leader?
We couldn’t do what we do at NAESP without member input. If you’re looking for ways to boost your leadership and effect change in the principal profession, these volunteer opportunities might be for you:
- Leadership and governance: The NAESP Board of Directors features president, president-elect, and vice president officer positions; zone directors representing all nine NAESP zones; and directors at-large minority and middle-level. The Board works to establish goals, provide fiscal oversight, and make policy decisions on behalf of the association.
- State leaders: One way the national association stays connected with elementary and middle-level principals is through state representatives who serve as liaisons between NAESP and state affiliates.
- Committees: NAESP has volunteer opportunities on three committees—Membership, Nominating, and Resolutions—that help deliver a highly valued member experience, uphold the high standards of the NAESP Board of Directors election, and shape policy, respectively.
- Advisers: The Professional Learning Advisory Committee gives volunteers a chance to work with other school leaders to gain feedback and insight into what NAESP members need. The Editorial Advisory Board advises NAESP’s Communication team to help ensure that the content and resources NAESP provides are useful and meaningful to members.

NAESP App Gets a Refresh
Member expectations are changing, and there’s consistently a desire for added convenience. People want instant connectivity, seamless user experiences, and contemporary interfaces—and that’s what they’ll get with the newly refreshed NAESP App.
The NAESP App is an unbeatable tool for staying connected with NAESP and its member experience; everything NAESP has to offer is available at your fingertips. In celebration of the app’s second anniversary this month, we’re launching an app refresh powered by an improved platform with enhanced notification performance and security.
