NCPEA, Voices of Today. Perspective of the Newcomer: So, What Else Is New?
Krepel, Thomas L.
The history of and current challenges to the National Council of Professors of Educational Administration (NCPEA) are examined in this paper. The first part outlines the challenges facing educational administration today. The second part offers observations about the history of the NCPEA. The early organization exhibited a sense of confidence, moral certainty, and willingness for risk-taking, which is counterposed to current concerns about its diminished openness and participation from newcomers. The third part offers findings of a 1992 member survey, which obtained a 60 percent response rate. Suggestions for improving the organization, based on survey findings, include supporting colleagues and new members, diversifying participation and membership, and considering organizational means for generating external support.
