Looking for materials from your track or workshop at the 2015 Summer Leadership Conference? Check out the OEA Union Schools' Training Materials page!

This year’s Summer Leadership Conference will be held at Sunriver Resort, just outside of Bend. Building upon the success of our previous summer conferences, our five innovative tracks will reflect our Mission, Vision, and Core Values by providing the necessary skills to win revenue in 2016, creating a dialogue on social equity & building community allies, enhancing skills to lead the way on educational practices and policy in our locals and community, and formulating strategies for offensive bargaining campaigns. The Conference will also include shorter workshops on a variety of important education, organizing and advocacy issues - which you will be able to sign up for on Day 1 of the conference.

The OEA Summer Leadership Conference is organized to provide a highly rewarding educational experience. Our conference is organized around five tracks.  Each track is set up to be unique to the subject area with highlighted integration of other tracks. We strongly suggest sending a team of members who attend different tracks with the purpose of sharing the collective knowledge and strategizing how to use that knowledge to enhance the capacity of your local. Download the conference brochure for more information.
