ATPE is thrilled to announce the members of the 2019-20 Leadership ATPE class. Now in its second year, Leadership ATPE offers professional development, leadership training, and networking opportunities for an elite group of education professionals chosen from within ATPE’s membership ranks.

Through this program, participating members receive opportunities to hone the skills needed to serve their schools and communities, pursue leadership roles within ATPE, and advance their careers. The year-long program includes two expense-paid leadership retreats and additional networking opportunities focused on building such skills as public speaking, advocacy, nonprofit leadership, and more. Members of the Leadership ATPE Class of 2019-20 will also be recognized during the 2020 ATPE Summit.

A member of our 2018-19 inaugural class hailed the program as “…a learning experience and a time of collaborative learning, sharing, and enlightenment. I am excited about the endless opportunities I have with ATPE and in education.”
