Sponsors and Vendors

2017 Sponsors and vendors

What is SEAC?
The members of State Education Association Communicators (SEAC) are employed by state affiliates of the National Education Association (NEA) with primary assignments in internal and/or external communication. Membership also includes communications staff of local affiliates of NEA, staff of state or local affiliates whose duties include internal/external communication, and staff who work in communications at NEA.

SEAC members are graphic designers, public relations specialists, editors, photographers, digital media specialists, writers, webmasters, media planners and more.

SEAC was the result of a consolidation in 2016 of two predecessor organizations: the NEA Public Relations Council of the States (PRC) and the State Education Editors (SEE). PRC was created in 1969. SEE was created in 1946.

The organization serves as a professional support network for SEAC members as they promote and defend public education and the interests of the 50 million students and the more than three million educators who learn in work in America’s public schools.

What is the SEAC Conference?
SEAC holds an annual conference that features general sessions that offer direction, perspective and interaction on the issues of interest to the full range of its membership. Breakout sessions offer opportunities for professional development designed to meet the needs of SEAC’s various constituencies.

The conference is also a tremendous networking opportunity, as SEAC members talk to their colleagues from around the country about what works and what doesn’t and build connections that serve them well when they return home to their state and local affiliates. It also strengthens connections among communications staff at NEA and the various state and local affiliates.

When and where is the 2017 SEAC Conference?
The location and exact dates of the conference vary from year to year. The 2017 SEAC Conference will be held June 4-7 in Vancouver, Washington, which is in the Portland, Oregon metropolitan area.

Why should your organization be a SEAC Conference sponsor?
As a SEAC Sponsor, you’ll have access to professional communicators who hire and work with vendors like you. And if you’re interested in connecting with educators, SEAC members communicate directly with more than 3.2 million public school employees around the country.
