6/30/21 - 2021 CTA Summer Institute Registration
CTA’s premier training is returning with a variety of workshops with a focus on preparing you and your local for the challenges that lie ahead, and a special emphasis on the unique issues and challenges we will all face as we prepare for the new school year. The 2021 Summer Institute – Home Edition! is provided free of charge to CTA members and will start on July 26th. Do not miss this extraordinary opportunity! The topics of the elective sessions will emulate our in-person Summer Institute tracks:
Communications: participants will learn why, when and how to use various communication tools for branding, education advocacy, member engagement campaigns and state and local elections.
Economic Justice: association leaders will be taught how to become knowledgeable and persuasive advocates for economic justice and the education profession, especially in these times of political extremes.
Emerging Leaders: intended for all CTA members who are beginning their activism in their local union.
Bargaining Skills: participants will learn basic skills and knowledge important to all bargaining team members, with a focus on current bargaining issues during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Instruction and Professional Development: these sessions will focus on addressing the needs of educators on how to address trauma and self-care for students and themselves.
Member Benefits: these sessions will help association leaders build their skills to engage members in new ways, providing tools and resources to help your local stay on the right track and help you engineer through hazardous conditions as well.
Member Organizing: this virtual course will focus on the skills, abilities, and proven best practices to recruit, engage, and organize members in our chapters and at every worksite.
School Finance: in these sessions, attendees will learn to analyze district finance, and how to use this knowledge to prepare for negotiations during an economic recession.
