1st 2nd 3rd Service Teams
Advocacy & Representation
The advocacy and representation team has as its main focus the opportunity to work and speak with legislators here in the state of Ohio and nationally. This is a very important role as we advocate for the needs of pre-K, elementary, and middle-level students as well as the educators who serve them.
Members tell us that networking is the number one reason to join OAESA. This service team will develop ways to connect with colleagues face-to-face as well as virtually. This is done through the connections subgroup as well as the editorial subgroup.
The Membership Service Team will assist the Board and staff in developing strategies to recruit, retain and recover members. Using the existing structure of Zone Directors, County Representatives and District Liaisons, the Membership Service Team will create and implement plans to increase our professional membership across the state. These plans may involve targeted goals, such as membership drives in specific areas or districts, as well as broad strategies that utilize effective methods of communicating the value of membership to all administrators.
Professional Learning
Advises the OAESA staff and Board of Directors on the professional development needs of Ohio's administrators. This includes standalone OAESA workshops and conferences, joint conferences with OASSA, and providing resources from other outlets.
FULL Professional Conference
The professional conference service team has the important role of developing the theme and energy behind the association's largest annual event. This team will help determine keynote speakers, clinic offerings, and the conference schedule.
This team comprises OAESA awards subgroups, including: The NAESP National Distinguished Principal Award, The Outstanding Assistant Principal Award, Hall of Fame Reading, Hall of Fame Visitation, and the Secretary of the Year. This is a way to shout out what is truly extraordinary in Ohio's schools.
