The premier educational offering for leaders and emerging leaders in child support

NCSEA U returns for its 5th year and will be held in conjunction with the 2018 NCSEA Leadership Symposium in Pittsburgh, PA. Scheduled for August 15-16, 2018, NCSEA U sees the return of the successful “Great Ideas: From Concept to Completion” curriculum for enhanced professional development and networking opportunities.

NCSEA U classes are for child support managers and staff who make real-time, often crucial decisions about organization-wide operations and administrative functions. These individuals are the current and emerging   leaders in the child support community. NCSEA U participants will have a unique opportunity to make important connections with colleagues and build an ongoing peer network.

The goal of NCSEA U is to equip future child support leaders to implement innovative ideas and initiatives to meet their program’s needs and expectations. The course will address the initial identification and development of innovative ideas, and tips for successful planning, preparation, communication and collaboration. It will also cover the leadership skills that are critical to achieving goals. NCSEA U will address practical approaches for dealing with uncontrollable issues and perceived barriers, and ways to turn challenges into opportunities. Finally, the course will cover the value of meaningful progress and how to measure success. Each participant will have the opportunity to learn about successful initiatives that have been implemented by others, to brainstorm great ideas for improving child support programs, and to explore practical applications for implementing important new skills in the workplace.

Detailed class descriptions will be posted by April 1, 2018. In response to feedback from previous NCSEA U classes, the expanded NCSEA U schedule  allows participants to attend all Leadership Symposium sessions, as well as additional networking opportunities with classmates.
