NEOA Annual Conference - Workshop RFP

Conference 2017: Portland, ME April 12 - 14, 2017

Thanks for your interest in preparing a session to share at NEOA's 41st Annual Conference. In recognition of the role NEOA's member programs play in the lives of their students, the theme for our conference is: "Lighting the Way to Student Success". Our programs light the way locally, in their work with students and communities, and nationally, as we advocate for issues that impact our students. Our workshops may target any part of the work done with our students, as long as the goal of the workshop is to share strategies, build on successes, and most importantly, Light the Way!
