Registration Coming Soon!
This conference, “The Power of Connection: Knowledge and Organizing Unites Us” is centered on the idea that building strong local unions and school site structures through nuts and bolts organizing, including Member and Community Engagement, is the key to a stronger Union. The future of your union, the California Teachers Association, depends on our ability to connect with every member on school sites, around our shared values and is the foundation of building the necessary power to continue in our roles as advocates for students, colleagues, the teaching profession, and public education in California.
Please consider joining your colleagues from across Southern California at this year’s conference as we hone the practice of building relationships by developing our skills and knowledge through multiple course offerings.
