State Education Research Staff Association &
National Association of Bargaining Professionals
2016 Research/Bargaining Conference

SERSA and NABP are proud to announce our 2016 Conference will be held in Denver, Colorado on December 6-8, 2016. The conference will start in the afternoon on Tuesday, December 6, with a “pre-conference” workshop on Changing the Narrative: Student-Centered Bargaining and Advocacy and end Thursday, December 8, at 3:00pm. The conference will be hosted by the Colorado Education Association (CEA) in their office space in Denver at 1500 Grant Street. We have guaranteed a block of rooms at the Warwick Denver Hotel. The rate is $135/nt; there is a parking charge of $24 for overnight valet or $10 for day parking. Rooms can be reserved by calling the hotel at 1-800-525-2888 and reserving as part of the group SERSA. The hotel is just 2 blocks (0.3 mile) from the conference site and there is a shuttle from the airport. The hotel and CEA office is near the heart of downtown Denver and renting a car is not necessary. Later this fall we will be providing conference registration and more details.

The conference topics will include:
• Alternative Student Testing
• Teacher Evaluation and Compensation
• The Teaching Penalty: Implications and Policy Solutions from Recent Research
• Teacher Shortage
• Updates on Pensions and the Affordable Care Act
• Charter Schools
