2020 OEA Summer Leadership Academy
PEOPLE. POWER. POSSIBILITIES
Registration for this event closed on Monday, June 15
The OEA Summer Leadership Academy is designed to help members at all levels of the association realize and develop skills and talents as leaders of their profession and their association while building relationships and organizing for power.
We are in the process of transforming the in-person 2020 OEA Summer Leadership Academy into a full online virtual conference. As we move the OEA Summer Leadership Academy online to a re-imagined virtual learning experience, our focus will remain the same. That is, to help OEA members at all levels of the association realize and develop skills and talents as leaders of their profession and their association while building relationships and organizing for power. We will still have our Keynote speakers and breakout sessions in the following areas:
Summer Leadership Academy Strands:
– Local Presidents Training (invitation only)
– Professional Issues
– Student Success and Supports
– Leadership Development
– Government Relations and Communication
We hope that you will join us at the re-imagined 2020 OEA Virtual Summer Leadership Academy to celebrate our People, Power, and Possibilities.

Christian Moore, MSW, LCW
Author, The Resilience Breakthrough (@whytryprogram)
Resiliency is something we’re all born with: from the homeless person on the street to the Harvard business grad. Most of us just haven’t learned how to tap into what’s already inside of us. In his presentation, Christian Moore draws on his work as a learning disabled social worker from an inner-city neighborhood to help explain why some people are able to thrive under any circumstances while others crumble from small challenges. He introduces audiences to four sources of resiliency – street, relational, resources and rock bottom – and shows how anyone can “bounce back” by tapping into these sources.
Closing – Wednesday, June 24, 2020
