Katie Elko and Kathy Pavalkis attended the NJEA Summer Leadership Conference at the Hilton in East Brunswick. It was a three-day conference. Please thank them when you see them for taking time out of their summer vacation to attend.
Katie was in the Web 2.0 workshop to learn how to create this website for us. We hope that our members will utilize this new technology in order for our association to communicate more effective to ALL members. It’s still a work in progress because 3 days was not quite enough to build everything into it we would like to have eventually.
Kathy Pavalkis attended the Legal Issues Affecting School Employees Workshop for three days. She will report to us all she learned at the September Representative Council meeting.
They both had a wonderful time and said they would be happy to attend again next year. They were both first time attendees. They said the way the NJEA times each workshop with breaks and meals kept the pace moving in such a way they never got too overwhelmed by the massive amount of information given to them.
