Are you interested in going to a NASP training for FREE? The NCSPA Legislative and Public Policy (LPP) Committee is actively recruiting School Psychologists in NC interested in leading advocacy efforts within NCSPA through collaboration. If you have an interest in learning how to support advocacy and build on to the existing advocacy efforts within NCSPA, please consider joining. As an incentive, NCSPA will sponsor 2 current NCSPA members to attend the NASP Public Policy Institute (PPI) in Washington, DC in July 2018, a 3-day event. Sponsorship includes the PPI conference fee, hotel, meals, and transportation expenses. Please visit the NASP website for more information. Afterwards, you will have new skills and serve on the NCSPA board to continue advocating within your profession and be able to apply these skills directly to your work and within your school district. This position is applicable for NCSP certification and is applicable to your performance appraisal. Please email Leigh Kokenes (leighkokenes@gmail.com) OR Mary Whitehouse (maryhwhitehouse@gmail.com) if you are interested in learning more details about this opportunity for leadership and advocacy.
