GREAT OPPORTUNITY-New President Training!

Greetings, NCUEA Local Presidents! The National Council of Urban Education Associations continues its partnership with NEA’s Center for Organizing (C4O) by providing NCUEA members trainings for new local presidents in the 2018-2019 school year. Moreover, NCUEA members are given preferential registration notice before non-NCUEA members to register for these training opportunities.


NCUEA continues to recognize the need to support new local presidents with training sessions aligned with NEA’s Leadership Competencies to provide skills and tools needed to achieve the Association’s 2018-2019 priorities.
