Welcome to the Southwest Area web page. We are excited to have you visit our page and hope you will find some valuable information. Take a few minutes and browse the complete NAEOP website to get familiar with all the opportunities available. Our affiliations are built on professional development opportunities, networking with other states across the country and encouraging growth both personally and professionally. Providing opportunities to all office professionals and for our members is what we are all about. Without members, there would not be an association. I encourage you to take that first step in building your career and become a member of your local, state or national associations for Educational Office Professionals.

In addition to my position of Southwest Area Director, I have been asked to be the Chairman of the Student Scholarship Committee. What a great program to help the youth of our country to achieve their dreams of academic excellence. You can find the application and criteria under the Member Area, Scholarship & Awards to get to the application information. Pass the word along to your affiliates that are awarding scholarships at their local and state levels, and get those applications going. You may send the completed application to The deadline is March 15, 2018.

Quarterly emails will be sent to keep you updated on the Southwest Area and NAEOP. Feel free to reach out to your neighboring states/affiliates as well by forwarding the emails.
