All Things Summer Leadership

Welcome to the NEOEA Summer Leadership Conference Page! Here you can find all the information your heart desires about Summer Leadership 2018.

Our Summer Leadership Committee is busy planning NEOEA’s annual summer leadership event for July 25-26, 2018. We will hold the event again this summer at the picturesque Bertram Inn in Aurora. It is a day and half of learning, socializing, and relaxation. The poolside reception on Wednesday evening is always a big hit. Our Keynote Speaker this year is Kathleen McKinley. Kathy will talk about what union life was like before the collective bargaining law took effect and offer her insights as to how life will be since the Janus v. AFSCME decision has been reached.

We’ve also invited area legislators and state board of education members to join us at our evening reception on Wednesday.

Our prices for this year are: $85 (commuting), $220 (double occupancy); $200 (single occupancy). The costs includes dinner, reception, breakfast, lunch, and, if selected, a hotel room. For members who wish to attend only the Treasurers’ School on Wednesday, the cost is $50 (includes dinner, keynote, and reception).

Bring your colleagues! Our conference offers topics that will interest seasoned leaders and our new members.
