KEA Local Presidents + Next Generation Leaders Training 2017

“You are not a leader until you have produced another leader who can produce another leader.”-Simon Banks

Like any member organization, the health and vitality of KEA depend on the engagement of its members and on the strength and vision of its leaders. That is especially true at the local level, where good leaders know that the most important thing they will ever do is to identify and prepare their replacements.
That’s why we are offering the 2017 Local Presidents + Next Generation Leaders training event July 16-17-18 at the Clarion Hotel, 1950 Newtown Pike, in Lexington.
2017 Local Presidents + Next Generation Leaders combines the best of our highly successful Local Presidents Training and Emerging Leaders Training. Everything about this conference is designed to help you build and maintain the strongest possible local association for your members—one that will thrive and succeed long after you retire.
KEA President Stephanie Winkler and Vice President Eddie Campbell urge ALL local presidents to attend this training, and to bring with you another local member who has the interest, vision and energy necessary to be the “next one up” in your local’s leadership.

Training will be conducted by KEA’s veteran professional staff. There will be sessions both for the entire group and for the individual “presidents” and “next generation leaders” groups.

Session topics will include:

  •  Leadership Styles
  • The Leader’s Role in Membership
  • Communication for Leaders
  • Basic Legal Rights of Educators
  • The Legislative Process and How School Law is made
  • KEPAC, The Kentucky Educators’ Political Action Committee
  • The Roles and Responsibilities of Presidents
  • Running an Effective Local Association• Planning and Budgeting for Your Local
  • Organizing Members
  • KEA 101: A Comprehensive Introduction to Your Association 

KEA will provide two nights’ lodging (on the 16th and 17th) for all participants, as well as breakfast and lunch on the 17th and 18th. (KEA will not pay mileage to participants, but is encouraging locals and districts to do so.)
