NASDAE is the re-named organization that has supported State Directors of Adult Education and their staff for almost three decades under the name of the National Adult Education Professional Development Consortium (NAEPEDC) incorporation in 1990.  While newly named to reflect the full body of our organizational work, the mission remains the same: to advance the leadership of state staff in adult education throughout the states and territories so that every program will be of quality and excellence as we together increase literacy and prepare adults for success as contributing members of our society through work, community and family; and, will be the leading voice in adult education for the nation.
