The training will be held Oct. 27-29 at the Westin Peachtree Plaza, 210 Peachtree St. NW, Atlanta, GA. The MTA has six (6) slots available that are NEA-funded and that will cover the cost of registration, hotel and flights. The purpose of the training is to prepare early-career educators and emerging leaders to be powerful advocates for their students, their profession and their associations. The hands-on training curriculum teaches participants foundational leadership skills, the logistics of running for elective office, and strategies to advocate for student-centered policies and racial/social justice issues that affect their schools and communities. If you are interested in attending, please email MTAGovernance@massteacher.org by Sept. 15.
