Wishing you a Happy New Year filled with many new and exciting opportunities. As we embark on our "next normal" I hope you will continue to be open to doing things differently. While it is challenging to learn new ways to communicate and collaborate, it can also be an exciting time of increased awareness and an opportunity to reinvent ourselves.

Always look for the good and the positive within the changes to come and find time to re-prioritize the things that are important to you. I hope that includes NAEOP and the opportunities provided for ongoing professional development.

I am hopeful that we will all be able to be together in person this year and look forward to seeing many of you in Pittsburgh for our Annual Conference.

Be Blessed and Stay Safe!

Welcome to the NAEOP Southeast Area. The National Association of Educational Office Professionals (NAEOP) currently has five geographical areas (Northeast, Northwest, North Central, Southeast and Southwest.) As a member of NAEOP, you are automatically a member of the Southeast Area if you currently live in one of nine states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, or Tennessee.

This year, NAEOP President Mary Guest, CEOE, has opted to use the NAEOP Vision as her theme - “To be the leading resource for educational professionals.” In conjunction with the theme, this year's logo will be the NAEOP Logo.

This year it will be more important and more challenging to remain connected. One great way to do that is by being a vital member of NAEOP where we strive continuously "to be the leading resource for educational professionals." While the way we connect may be different this year, the connections and opportunities are stronger than ever. We are learning a lot about our abilities, learning new and different technologies and re-prioritizing the things that are important to us. I hope that NAEOP will be one of your priorities this year and that you will get involved on a committee and utilize all avenues to network and connect with your colleagues in your state, the Southeast Area as well as across the Nation.

I look forward to getting to know you better and to having a great year!

Georgette Council, CEOE, Southeast Area Director
