Summer Leadership Conference 20182018 CEA Summer Leadership Conference
June 11-13, 2018 | Beaver Run Resort and Conference Center | Breckenridge, CO
GROW: Leadership, Capacity, Influence



Registration is NOW OPEN for the 2018 Summer Leadership Conference!

Summer Leadership Conference is CEA’s largest annual professional development conference for members. Educators stand in a singular place in their ability and responsibility to impact the lives of vulnerable populations and those with limited resources. This year’s Summer Leadership Conference will address Association growth through the lens of how our work addresses a diverse range of interests and public education priorities under the theme GROW: Leadership, Capacity, Influence.

Our educators and communities are clamoring to be heard by local districts and at the state legislature. As in year’s past, we will hold our provocative conversations in the heart of Colorado, where we have an opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives to GROW together. With a potential contentious gubernatorial race this year and a public education system that is constantly changing and being challenged, it’s crucial that we all unite our voices at the 2018 SLC conference for the sake of educators and students across Colorado.

Sessions this year will address the following questions:

  • How can we continue identifying and building a new generation of Association leaders that will affect positive changes in public education?
  • How can we develop the capacity of educators and communities to unite their voices and advocate for students and their families?
  • How can the local Associations increase their influence across community and political landscapes in the interest of members and the kids they work with every day?
