Adult Education Primer for New State Directors

Welcome New State Directors

The National Adult Education Professional Development Consortium, Inc. (NAEPDC) was created by and for state directors of adult education to assist with our professional development and public policy needs. We know what it’s like to be the “new kid on the block.” We’ve all been there! As a new state director, you have been given a wonderful opportunity to guide your state’s literacy efforts. You have also been given a tremendous responsibility for shaping and directing the delivery of quality adult education programs, maintaining accountability, coordinating efforts with other stakeholders, and ensuring compliance with Federal directives.

Initially, some of these responsibilities may seem overwhelming to you. Remember: NAEPDC is here to help you along your new journey. In addition to the variety of services that NAEPDC provides to all state directors, we have developed specialized assistance for new state directors.
