NAF Next was a huge success! NAF Next is a dynamic professional development conference that brings together education, business, and community leaders to address some of the biggest challenges facing education and the economy. More than 1,000 NAF network members came together to learn how they can ensure students, teachers, and partners can #BeFutureReady. The conference was held on July 8 -11, 2018. With many speakers with very inspirational messages, these members of the NAF network: teachers, academy directors, counselors, advisory board members, business partners, district administrators, and anyone committed, learned so many valuable lessons. Also, working together with members from across the NAF network, all participants left the conference inspired and equipped with practical and proven strategies to ensure all NAF students, teachers, and partners can actually Be Future Ready.
