About EdTA Leadership Summit

EdTA’s Leadership Summit is an event where EdTA chapter volunteer leaders come together to network, plan, and focus on organizational best practices to support their chapter operations. The Leadership Summit is open to all chapter directors and chapter board members.

The 2023 Leadership Summit will be held in Washington, D.C. from July 20-21, 2023.

Each chapter leader should register individually. Registration deadline is Saturday, July 16 at 11:59pm. Zoom links will be emailed out to attendees the week before the event.

Day 1 will be general session content that is recommended for all chapter leaders to attend, regardless of role or responsibility.

Day 2 will consist of EdTA staff and Board of Directors office hours, specialized breakout sessions that are follow-ups to the general sessions that will be more role/responsibility focused (i.e. Treasurers, technologists, ALN, etc), and six hours of time dedicated for chapter leaders to work together on their own in various structures (i.e. chapter board, cross-chapter collaboration, etc).
