Summer Leadership Conference

Join us for the 2018 OEA Summer Leadership Conference!

There has never been a better time to be part of a union than right now. At Summer Leadership Conference 2018, we will be focused on elevating and connecting OEA members and our community partners. Our collective wisdom exceeds what any of us can do alone; coming together will make us stronger. Everyone is a teacher, everyone is a learner, and we all contain within us the seed to make change.

Please join us July 24-26 for our annual Summer Leadership Conference: COMMUNITY: Our Strength – Our Power.
