Turn the wheel toward Indianapolis — a city of hallowed halls and blazing innovation — and take a pit stop for ALDE and ELEA’s renowned offerings of professional development, fellowship, worship and fun. Just like a successful racecar driver needs a top crew, ELEA and ALDE will be on your team whether you are on your fundraising pace lap or need to add some horsepower to reach the next level. Come to the 2013 ELEA/ALDE conference in Indianapolis to experience good people and the Good News of our work for the people of God.
WHAT IS ELEA, AND WHY SHOULD I ATTEND THIS EVENT?
The Evangelical Lutheran Education Association is your doorway to quality training and resources to support your early childhood, elementary or secondary weekday education centers and schools. Once a year, administrators and pastors gather together to network and learn to achieve the highest quality programming possible. For the second straight year, ELEA will be cohosting its National School Administrator and Pastor Conference with ALDE. But you don’t have to be an ALDE or ELEA member to attend!
WHAT IS ALDE, AND WHY IS ELEA PARTNERING WITH THEM?
ALDE is an international community of fundraising and communication professionals that is rooted in the Christian faith and dedicated to serving God's people in the church and the world as it inspires, connects and equips Christians for excellence in philanthropy. ALDE has a reputation for high-quality education, networking and support, and church/school professionals can learn a lot from them. ELEA had a great experience last year, and that’s why the ELEA/ALDE Conference Within a Conference is again being held alongside the ALDE International Educational Conference (IEC).
