What better way to utilize President Betty Napolitano’s theme “Navigate Your Way to Success with NAEOP” than to participate and support the professional development programs offered by NAEOP. 

 Have you truly considered all the benefits of being an affiliate of NAEOP?  It is my privilege this year to serve as the chairman for the Professional Development/Partners Reaching Out Committee.  This web page probably won’t give you all the ins and outs of what is available, but at least I hope to spark your interest in planning your next local, state, or area event.   You see, if your association is an affiliate of NAEOP you may request, through Field Service, someone to

  • Present a workshop,
  • Present a keynote address,
  • Promote NAEOP
  • Install officers.  

 Yes, NAEOP has people who would be glad to serve in any of these functions.  You can find any one of the elected NAEOP Board Members who have a number of topics for you to choose from by navigating from here to  

  • Choose the “Programs” Tab
  • Then Professional Development.

There you will find the information you are looking for as well as the “Field Service Request Form.”  This completed form along with a donation to Field Service should be sent at least ninety (90) days prior to the event to the national office for approval and scheduling.  Once determination is made whether or not the requested speaker is available, a confirmation is sent to the affiliate contact person.

The Partners Reaching Out Program is offered to organizations, associations and any other educational groups who are not affiliated with NAEOP or the NAEOP Foundation.  This program’s mission is to provide opportunities for professional development for educational office professionals.   

  • The presenter will be a current NAEOP member.
  • The Executive Director of NAEOP will work with the requesting group to provide professional development for a nominal fee.

As we navigate our way through the 2014-2015 year I look forward to working with affiliate representatives and all who are interested in professional development for their members.  Please feel free to contact me if you need information or have questions regarding the Field Service Program or the Partners Reaching Out Program at stelmacht@bellsouth.net or by mail at:
