ASILOMAR, CA, January 2018–The USEE Leadership Team participated in a week-long workshop of NAAEE State Affiliates. This was a gathering of 10 affiliate state teams, who have been working for a year to help support and strengthen the efforts in each of their states, as well as 22 other state representatives. The efforts of the 10 teams is intended to cross over to those 22 other affiliates, as well as the other states who weren't represented at this meeting. NAAEE allowed the time and space to collaborate, brainstorm and truly support each and every state who is a part of the affiliate network. Looking forward to a very productive 2018!
