Members

 

Here is a list of workshop choices.

 

Please note that these workshops are free and open to all members during the pandemic. Take advantage of this opportunity.

 

The first two Winter Leadership Conferences (WLC) were a great success with almost 1,000 members registering. The last WLC, which will be on Saturday, March 6, 2021, will be virtual and will have no cost to participate. All NJEA members are eligible to attend.

 

The conference will offer the same 18 workshops and will be a one-day training opportunity with four hours of training. Like the other WLCs, this conference will not be geographically based since travel is not required. Therefore, members from throughout the state can register. The registration deadline is this Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2021 and no registrations will be accepted after these deadlines have passed.

 

When our WLCs are in-person, members can only register for one conference. The registration system that is being using for the virtual conferences also only allows you to register for one WLC. However, here’s a little secret….if you use a different email address you can register for another WLC. So, if you have already participated in WLC I or WLC II and want to register for another conference, now is your chance!

 

To complete your WLC registration, click on the following link — www.njea.org/wlc2021. You will need your NJEA PIN, which can be found on the front of your membership card.
