This conference, “Organizing – The Path to Strength and Unity”, will offer multiple training sessions designed to build leadership skills and increase competencies in several areas that educators are facing in their careers and as Association leaders. In addition, we will be discussing the implementation of the CTA Strategic Plan.

A Chapter Treasurer Training will be offered from 1:00PM – 3:00PM followed by a PAC Treasurer Training from 3:30PM – 5:00PM. See enclosed notice for details. In the evening, there will be a reception from 6:00PM - 8:00PM hosted by our Service Center Councils. Starting at 8:00PM, a State Budget Update will be presented.


Saturday - A general session will convene after breakfast to present the CTA Strategic Plan. Participants will then break into smaller groups to take part in facilitated discussions on the implications, insights and ideas about the Strategic Plan.  Lunch will be followed by Saturday’s keynote speaker, CTA President Dean Vogel. After the keynote address, participants will attend two 90-minute workshop sessions.


Sunday morning begins with a round of electives for all participants. The conference will conclude with a keynote address by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson, a brunch buffet and prize drawings.
