This year, OEA staff are excited to bring a dynamic, new format to the OEA Summer Academy. Working in Local Association or Board of Director teams, you will create strategic organizing plans to guide your association work for the 2018 – 2019 school year.

For three days, you will strengthen relationships; learn organizing strategies; consider what your Union means to you, your colleagues, your students, and your communities; and develop a “Why” that engages others to join you in the work of your Union. For one day, you will immerse yourself in the content track of your choice to further your learning on a specific topic and to consider how you might implement those concepts into your strategic organizing plan.

Following the OEA Summer Academy, your teams can look forward to checking in with OEA governance and staff to discuss implementation successes and challenges, and to receiving support from OEA staff and member colleagues as you work toward achieving the hopeful change you seek to ensure a strong future for your local Union.

Your team will create five (5) work products to help guide the implementation of your association strategic organizing plan. They are:

Theory of Change

Collective Why


Tactics and Timelines
