One of the benefits of being part of the Michigan Education Association (MEA) and the National Education Association (NEA) is that we are able to tap into training resources which benefit us not only as individuals, but also our work teams, local union and our greater community.
One upcoming conference being held locally in East Lansing, is the “2020 Education Support Professionals Conference” on March 13-14 at MEA Headquarters located near Abbot & Saginaw. Garlin Gilchrist, the Lt. Governor for the State of Michigan will be the keynote speaker. This conference is designed to serve the expressed needs of support staff. Conference costs vary depending on how early you register and if attending both days or just one. Costs start at $20 to register for just the Saturday session.
