Welcome to the Southeast Area website. If you are new to our association, please take a little time to visit the entire NAEOP website. NAEOP offers many opportunities for professional and personal growth to its members. As a member of the Southeast Area you will receive newsletters and updates from the national office. As an active member of NAEOP, you will benefit from networking with others across the United States.

We congratulate and join our new president, Patricia Stelmach, CEOE, in “Put Your Best Foot Forward.” Along the way, as we become more involved in professional associations, including NAEOP, we realize that we care not only about our growth, but that of others and we must share what we have learned with others around us. Join NAEOP this year to “Put Your Best Foot Forward “while at work, home, in your associations, and in your community.

NAEOP offers many benefits to you as a member:

  • Professional Development
  • Professional Standards Program
  • Annual Conference and Institutes
  • Magazine
  • Network for receiving and sharing
  • Recognition
  • Fellowship

The Southeast Area rotates among the states to host our annual professional development seminar weekend each year. Those states not hosting are given responsibilities and assignments as we all do our part for the success of the program. Fifty to 100 members from several states usually attend. This school year the Southeast Area will conduct a professional development seminar in Baton Rouge, Louisiana April 22-24, 2016. Louisiana will be the host for the 2016 event. Attending the weekend seminar will give participants the opportunity to earn PSP credit and to network with other educational office professionals.

For more information about NAEOP or the Southeast Area, please contact me. I’d love to hear from you.

Malinda Larey, CEOE
Southeast Area Director
