New CEO Orientation Registration - Last Call
AESA has offered professional development opportunities for new or newer CEOs for the past five years.  This has proven to be a very worthwhile experience for the folks that have attended as they have explored the history of ESAs, obtained a grasp of the challenges facing ESAs, and had the opportunity to share some of their most pressing leadership questions.  It has also provided the opportunity for participants to begin to build their professional network of ESA leaders.  We are once again holding this leadership professional development on May 11-13th in Cincinnati, OH. If you or someone you know could benefit from this unique learning experience  check out the flyer and registration information.
