2022 National AfterSchool Convention
You're invited to the 2022 National AfterSchool Convention!
Have you ever wondered why NAA has a convention and not a conference? A convention is a large meeting with members, representatives or delegates of a particular profession who meet to discuss and take action on specific matters of common concern.
As the professional membership association for our field, NAA has been hosting members and delegates who have a common purpose – high-quality afterschool and summer programs for all kids - for nearly 35 years.
This year, the convention seems especially timely as our field faces a workforce crisis beyond what we have ever experienced.
This time it's different.
This year, the stakes are at an all-time high.
This year necessitates bold action.
NAA invites you to participate in the Thriving Workforce Invite-Only Sessions. In these sessions, NAA will be presenting a workforce theory of change and unveiling a job quality framework for afterschool workers. We will get feedback and input from program providers, intermediaries, funders, and policymakers on the presented items during these sessions. Our goal here is to move from conversation to action, all our organizations have spent a lot of time acknowledging the challenges, and we want to use our time together to move our field forward.
The National AfterSchool Association’s (NAA) Annual Convention brings together approximately 1,000 afterschool professionals for the premier learning, networking, and professional development event in the field. The NAA22 Convention will bring together the afterschool field in UNITY with commUNITY for a can’t miss opportUNITY. NAA is committed to helping these professionals grow, share, and connect. Our annual convention offers more than 150 hands-on workshops and learning opportunities, as well as daily networking events to help develop a national community of afterschool professionals who together can support the academic, social, emotional, and physical development of children and youth.REGISTER FOR EVENT ❯
