A Message from our President


Nikki Piper - President


Welcome to the Nebraska State Literacy Association (NSLA)!  We are a non-profit, volunteer-run organization.  Our mission is to lead in the promotion of literacy in the state of Nebraska through collaboration, advocacy and professional development.  We work to accomplish our mission by sharing current research and best practices through communication, networking, workshops, publications and our yearly conference.  This year some of our priorities include launching a new website and blog, restructuring our committees, board recruitment, and providing professional development opportunities for literacy leaders across the state.

If you are reading this, you have discovered our new and improved website!  A great team of volunteers have worked hard to make our content relevant and accessible.  I hope you will take some time to explore what the website has to offer in the next few months as more and more content gets added.  This year we will be unveiling a new blog and we would love for you to be involved.  If you have any interest in sharing on our blog please contact Emily Fisher at nslablog@neliteracy.org.

I first got involved with the NSLA by attending the annual conference as a college student.  The ideas, networking opportunities, and passion for literacy evident in the leadership made me want to get more involved.  I reached out to a board member and the rest is history.  I would love to have you involved in a way that fits your gifts and passions.  Keep checking the Opportunities section of the website for ways to get involved.  

The Nebraska State Literacy Association also honors, celebrates and awards community organizations and individuals that advocate for literacy.  We certainly hope you visit our website to get an understanding of who we are, see what we have to offer and then decide to become a member.  In doing so you will be actively demonstrating your own mission to promote literacy.  We would love to have you involved in this great work!
