NAEOP Northwest Area
2017-2018

Serving Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, Wyoming

“Accept the Challenge: Become the Difference”

Welcome to the NAEOP Northwest Area web page! If you are a member of NAEOP and work in a support position in an educational office in the states of Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon,
Washington and Wyoming, you are a part of the Northwest Region! I love the theme that Lisa Morehouse, our NAEOP President, has selected for 2017-18! I recently saw a quotation posted by NAEOP Past-President Wendy Heslink: “If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.” It struck me how well this ties in with Lisa’s theme for the year. Not only do challenges
change us, but they change others, as well, truly making a difference. I recently received a call from a teacher at our local junior high telling me I had been recommended to speak to her students on the topic of “organization.” My immediate thought was, not me! While I have the ability to get a lot done, I don’t necessarily owe it to any set system of organization. But then I
thought, why not me? If it is a challenge, it may change me! My superintendent encouraged me to take the challenge and invite a friend to join me – and I now have two friends joining me to share organizational tips with the Eastmont Junior High honors class! I love the way NAEOP gives us opportunities to learn and grow and also provides opportunities for mentorship!
A few of the benefits you will receive as a NAEOP Member are:

  • Four electronic issues of the Association’s magazine, the NES Connector (hard copies available through subscription).
  • Professional Standards Program
  • Reduced Conference/Institute Registration Fees
  • Awards Program
  • Networking opportunities
  • Professional Growth opportunities

I will also serve as Chairman of the Public Relations & Publications Committee. If you have any ideas for making our profession and our organization stronger, please contact me ~ we would welcome your input! Thank you for the opportunity to serve you!
