The American Federation of Teachers TEACH conference, a biennial event devoted to professional development, will be held July 13-15 in Washington.
All local presidents should receive an information packet from the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) that includes a tentative schedule and hotel and conference registration forms. AFT plans to begin mailing the packets in mid-April, so local presidents who have not received information by May 10 should contact Heidi Glidden, AFT TEACH coordinator, at 202-393-7476.
Education Minnesota will provide funding for one member from each election district, as well as one statewide/higher education member and one education support professional member, to attend the conference. Read more.
All members are welcome to attend at their own expense.
