State Arts Agency Arts Education Managers & State Education Agency Directors of Arts Education
2013 Professional Development Institute
For more than 20 years, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies have supported the Professional Development Institute (PDI) for state arts agency arts education managers. The PDI provides meaningful leadership development and technical assistance for this diverse field. As a result, arts education managers remain knowledgeable leaders in their field through a peer network that new and seasoned managers find invaluable.
This year's session marked the first joint PDI with the State Education Agency Directors of Arts Education (SEADAE). This opportunity to come together jointly as state agencies and partners brought value and added capacity to state work.
The 2013 PDI was designed to offer shared learning experiences for state education agency arts education representatives as well as state arts agency staff. In keeping with the NEA's emphasis on collective impact, we hope that this collaboration led to a rewarding learning experience for all.
