Need to PUMP UP Your Leadership?
You're In The Right Place - Welcome to NAWD!

The National Association of Workshop Directors (NAWD) is a professional organization founded by Dr. Earl Reum in 1973. NAWD brings together advisors of all student activities that support and encourage student involvement in and out of the classroom, as well as leadership education teachers, regional/state activity program planners, and others interested in leadership training and activity planning.

Each December, the annual National Conference on Student Activities features top notch speakers and presenters, and also provides a plethora of opportunties to share great ideas while networking with a vibrant professional community dedicated to student leadership and activities. This conference has a rich history of bringing together leaders in the field of student activities, CLICK HERE to view a history of our annual meetings. Whether attending your first conference or your twentieth (or more!), the people you meet, knowledge you gain, and ideas you share will have a lasting impact on you as well as the students and adults you work with.

NAWD is affiliated with the National Association of State Student Council Executive Directors (NASSCED), the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), the National Association of Student Councils (NASC), and many state student council associations. A board of directors composed of former Workshop Directors of the Year helps to set association policies.  As Executive Director, Jim Finnemeyer coordinates memberships, the annual National Conference on Student Activities (in cooperation with the state host), and answers questions related to the association.

NAWD members include - but are not limited to - state student council executive directors, state and regional leadership camp/conference coordinators, leadership educators, speakers/presenters, and school activity directors. We invite ALL who are interested in student activities, leadership training, and speaking/presenting to explore our website and to become an active part of our organization!
