The State Staff Workgroup is building a data base of all state staff so we can create networks and share information. They need your help. Here is their request.

As you are aware, NAEPDC was established to provide professional development and technical assistance to state directors of adult education and their staff members. In an effort to expand services to your state staff, we need to be able to identify who they are and their areas of responsibilities. This information will greatly assist us in (1) designing national needs assessments to better determine their common or regional needs, (2) planning relevant professional development and support, and (3) developing a communication network that will enable state staff with similar responsibilities to share ideas and resources with their colleagues in other states.

The NAEPDC State Staff Workgroup has prepared an online submission form for contact information on your state staff members. We are defining state staff as individuals (agency employees or contracted vendors) who perform statewide responsibilities for your adult education program. Many of you have designated a Consortium Associate to serve as the “point person” for the submission of this form. This email is also being sent to them. If you want to double-check to see if your state submitted a name, you can view the attached file - Consortium Associates.

Timely submission of the state staff contact information will allow us to begin some exciting work that will benefit your staff. We are in discussions with the National Institute for Literacy in hopes of some collaborative efforts that will expand services specifically to adult education state staff members.

Once all of the contact information is submitted and compiled, you will be able to electronically search state staff members by state and/or job function. So please ask your Consortium Associate or whoever will be submitting the information, to go to

Directions: You only need to enter the “state director” information the one time. After you enter the first state staff person, click “submit form” and if you have additional state staff members, click the browser’s back button and enter additional staff.

The submission deadline is October 20, 2006. Thank you for your assistance with this important effort.
