NHESO, the staff union of NEA-NH, is offering a Jo Campbell Scholarship in the amount of $700 towards the cost of sending one NEA-NH Educational Support Professional member from New Hampshire to the NEA ESP Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana, March 20-22, 2020.
The NEA ESP conference is the premier professional development opportunity for Education Support Professionals across the nation. The goal of this conference is to enhance the skills and knowledge of ESP members to positively impact student achievement, build community relations, organize members, advocate for educators, build stronger locals, and help our members do their jobs better.
The conference offers more than 50 different hands-on workshops over the course of four days. Pre-Conference workshop opportunities are offered in topics ranging from social justice, membership recruitment techniques and leadership development to communication skills training, membership empowerment, and creating strategic alliances with other labor organizations.
Special pre-conference workshops specifically targeted for emerging and advanced Association leaders are also offered.
NHESO is asking members who are interested in qualifying for this scholarship to submit the application along with an essay. The brief essay, of no more than 250 words, should explain why you would like to attend this event and what you hope to bring back to your local from what you learned at this conference.
