ESP members are essential

As an Education Support Professional (ESP) employee, you know just how much your workplace colleagues and your students depend on you - and your fellow NEARI members do too!

Join the ESP Caucus!

The NEARI ESP Caucus represents the interests of ESP members at the state level of the Association. The Caucus also is a prime supporter of the NEARI Children's Fund, running various fundraising events throughout the year for needy students. Caucus members also enhance NEARI's Read Across America celebration by giving away thousands of new and gently used books to children who attend the event, collected throughout the year.
