Southwest Area

Affiliate of the National Association of Educational Office Professionals (NAEOP)



Including the States of:

Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, and Utah

Welcome to the Southwest Area web page. I am excited to welcome you to our website and hope you will find some valuable information. Take a few minutes and browse the complete NAEOP website to get familiar with all the opportunities available. Our affiliations are built on professional development opportunities, networking with other states across the country and encouraging growth both personally and professionally. Providing opportunities to all office professionals and for our members is what we are all about. Without members, there would not be an association. I encourage you to take that first step in building your career and become a member of your local, state or national associations for Educational Office Professionals.

In addition to my position of Southwest Area Director, I have been asked to be the Chairman of the Nominations and Elections Committee as well as Special Projects. Leadership comes in many forms, and one of the best ways to get involved with NAEOP is to run for a position on the NAEOP Executive Board. The forms, with criteria and important information can be found at, under the Members Section, under Association Documents.

Emails/newsletters will be sent to keep you updated on the Southwest Area and NAEOP. Feel free to reach out to your neighboring states/affiliates as well by forwarding the correspondence you receive.

Our current webmaster is Beth Heyden, (CA). I invite you to visit our Facebook page or Twitter. We will keep you up to date on all things Southwest Area. If you have any questions, or need to contact me for any reason, you can email me at the address below.

Have a great year!

Teresa Himmelberger, CEOE
