Due to the increasing health concerns and escalating developments that have occurred over the last several weeks regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, including the state of emergency in several states, the NSELA Board of Directors decided that the Summer Leadership Institute scheduled to take place July 9-11, 2020 in Austin, TX will no longer take place. The NSELA Board and Staff are thoughtfully exploring professional development opportunities in 2020.  The 2021 Summer Leadership Institute will be in Austin, TX.  We will provide an update once a final professional development plan has been made.
