Higher Education Council

Welcome to the webpage dedicated to NAEOP's Higher Education Council. When you join/renew NAEOP, you automatically become a member of two groups of people. The state that you reside in determines which geographic area you belong to (there are seven areas), and the educational area that you work in determines the Membership Council you belong to. Besides the Higher Education Council, there are five other councils including Elementary, Middle School/Junior High, High School/Career Technical Education, Administrative and Education Partners.

Higher Education Council members work in a variety of different areas of post-secondary education. You will find us working in the academic departments, but we also work in the administrative, business, and support offices.

If you are not a member of the National Association of Educational Office Professionals (NAEOP), I encourage you to consider the benefits listed below. We would love to have you join us!

NAEOP is a national professional association specifically for educational office professionals that also has many state and local affiliated associations. Becoming a member of NAEOP can open the door for you to experience many professional development opportunities:

        • Conferences (State, Area, and National)
        • Educational Institutes and Workshops
        • Leadership and Technology Skills
        • Webinars

NAEOP offers opportunities for recognition and certification:

        • Educational Office Professional of the Year
        • Educational Administrator of the Year
        • Affiliate Recognition for newsletter and website publications
        • Scholarship opportunities for members and member dependents
        • National certification (Professional Standards Program)

Networking opportunities abound when you join NAEOP:

        • Through the NAEOP Website (www.naeop.org)
        • At specific council meetings at the Annual Conference (where members network, exchange ideas, and share common concerns and/or goals)

If you have any questions, or would like further information about the Higher Education Council, I would love to hear from you.
