Orlando, FL
Hyatt Regency Orlando

Proposal Submission Deadline: October 4, 2019
Presenters will be notified of selection by November 4, 2019


The National Education Association is looking for dynamic presentations, presenters and trainers for the annual National Leadership Summit, March 13 – March 15, 2020, in Orlando, Florida.

The purpose of the summit is to develop activist leaders and prepare them with the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to lead relevant, thriving associations and to lead in their professions. The Leadership Summit is designed to support experiential learning that provides opportunities for NEA members and leaders to develop the knowledge and skills articulated in NEA’s Leadership Competency Framework. The Summit is for NEA members and leaders, regardless of experience level, membership type, or profession. With that in mind, NEA views a request for proposal as a solicitation for a training design that directly supports the purpose of the Summit. That is, the proposal must incorporate content from the competency domains and clearly explain how the use of the content will help develop the KSAs outlined in the framework.
