Message from Region 2 President, Nicole Newman


ACSA Region 2 Members,

I hope this email finds each of you getting some well-needed time off. Many of us attended the ACSA Region 2 Leadership Conference in South Lake Tahoe a few weeks ago. We spent much time planning for the upcoming year, discussing priorities, and working on our region’s draft strategic plan

We will focus on several priorities in the upcoming year to enhance member support and engagement. These include offering quick, timely, and relevant professional development opportunities and providing continuous learning, networking, and support options. We aim to customize career development opportunities and establish community groups for members with different interests or job-alikes.

To begin this work, we ask that you participate in a quick survey so we can start planning professional development for the 2023–24 school year. To kick us off, our very own Kristy Warren, Vice President, Communications & Member Engagement, has volunteered to kick off the year with virtual professional development on best social media practices for administrators! Thank you, Kristy!

The 2023-24 Region 2 strategic plan will also address the well-being of our members, students, and educators. Additionally, we recognize the importance of keeping you informed about government relations activities and will provide more frequent updates. Also, to foster a strong professional community, we aim to increase member access to information exchanged and developed in Committee and Council meetings.

We are also excited to implement intentional strategies that engage and involve new, aspiring, experienced, and retired members. Together, we can shape the future of education and positively impact California’s education system.

Thank you for your continued support and active participation. We value your dedication as educational leaders and look forward to working together.

Educationally yours,

Nicole Newman

2023-2024 Region 2 ACSA President
