EOPO Superheroes Unite

The theme for my time as President of EOPO is “EOPO Superheroes Unite.” This is a nod to the theme embraced by our now Past President Mary Beth Smith for the previous two years. She encouraged us to “Unleash Your Inner Superhero.” So now that we have been unleashed upon the educational world, we need to unite our super powers to spread the word about how professional development makes us better educational office employees.

The EOPO Board made a decision last year to reduce our gatherings to one conference a year. Our 2019-20 conference was October 25 in Westlake, Ohio. We brought together almost 70 superheroes from across the state to learn and grow for a whole day. Please check out the pictures and notes on the conference starting on page 2 of the EOPO Newsletter. Your next opportunity to gather with other EOPO members will be on Friday, October 9, 2020, in the Cincinnati area. We are still working on a location, but as soon as a contract is signed, the information will be shared.

With only one conference a year, the Board is exploring ways for us to stay in touch as well as provide professional development. We are working on the details for a book study in the spring. Please contact me for preliminary information. If there is someone in your school who might provide a one hour training webinar through Zoom or other online format, please get in touch with me. We would be willing to entertain hosting the presentation by helping with publicity and gaining approval of PSP credit.

Exercise your superhero muscles this year and join with others in these EOPO professional development efforts.
