Conferences & Events

Experience the Power of Working Together
At ND United conferences, members swap stories, rally around common issues, learn from leaders, and make sure they are heard by those who are determining their pay, benefits and terms of employment.
ND United holds many events and training sessions throughout the year for members to connect by career phase and role, and to advance our work to improve working conditions for educators and public employees.

We Can't Do It Without You
