Greetings from the SBEA Director
Elisha C. Wohleb, PhD
SBEA Director to NBEA Board
MARK YOUR CALENDAR! The National Business Education Association will hold the 2022 Annual Convention at the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile in Chicago, Illinois from April 12-15, 2022. This conference will be a hybrid conference, with options to attend in-person or virtually. As always, the NBEA Convention will be very informative with numerous interest and technology session offerings to enhance your professional development. The convention hotel is in an excellent location that offers superb shopping, dining, and cultural outings. Pre- and post-convention tours will also be offered. I look forward to seeing everyone in Chicago!
Membership Recruitment and Retention continues to be a BIG focus. Make sure you are telling all of your colleagues the benefits of joining our premier national organization. I challenge each of you to recruit at least one member. The benefits of NBEA are undeniable.
I continue to be enthusiastic to represent the Southern Region as SBEA Director to the NBEA Board. Our members are the lifeblood of these professional organizations. I hope as SBEA/NBEA members you will take advantage of all the opportunities your professional organizations have to offer. It is important for each of us to develop professionally by exploring the latest technology workshops, newest teaching strategies, changing market trends, and legislative issues. Becoming active in SBEA/NBEA will help you achieve these goals.
