Apply to Attend 2017 AFT TEACH

Written by Saint Paul Federation of Teachers, in News

The biennial AFT TEACH Conference (Together Teaching America’s Children) provides a unique opportunity for union members to gather and celebrate education through high quality professional development workshops, overviews of innovative work and best practices and inspiration from keynote speakers. The 2017 conference will be held Thursday, July 20 to Saturday, July 22, 2017 at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington DC.

We are looking to engage a member cohort from all bargaining units with diverse work and union leadership experience. TEACH cohort members must agree to attend two pre-conference meetings scheduled for Monday, May 22, (following the monthly member meeting) and Wednesday, July 12 to get acquainted with attendees and go over details and funding for the conference.

Funding to attend this conference generally covers lodging, airfare and some meals.

Interested members should complete the application form available as a Word Doc or PDF and return it to the SPFT Office by Friday, April 28.
