Principals to Convene in D.C. for National Leaders Conference

January 2013, Volume 36, Issue 5

NAESP will host its annual National Leaders Conference February 24-27, 2013, in Washington, D.C. Nearly 200 elementary and middle-level principal leaders from around the nation will converge on the nation’s capital and participate in programming around leadership, membership, advocacy, and policy.

The conference will include leadership development and information on membership, as well as updates and insights into the federal advocacy and policy landscape in Washington. On Tuesday, February 26, attendees will meet with legislators on Capitol Hill to discuss issues of critical importance to principals.

The conference will kick off with an important Delegate Assembly, at which attendees will vote on proposed resolutions for the NAESP Policy Platform. Representatives on the NAESP Resolutions Committee worked in November to update the statements to accurately reflect the realities of the profession. The results of the Committee’s diligent work this year are changes (edits, combinations, and deletions) to 38 resolutions that can be found on the NAESP website.

There is one final opportunity for members to offer insights and suggestions on these proposed resolutions. The Resolutions Committee will hold an Open Hearing Conference Call on February 4, 2013, at 2:00 p.m. (Eastern). During the Open Hearing Conference Call, the Resolutions Committee will hear any comments and suggestions regarding the proposed resolutions. To participate in the Open Hearing Conference Call, please call 866-290-3067, and enter conference code 9437098830.

Following this Open Hearing, the Committee will review the feedback and prepare a final report for the February Delegate Assembly.
