Education Minnesota provides these types of workshops for student members.
Campus membership drive. We explain what Education Minnesota is all about and the benefits (insurance, financial, educational) of membership in Education Minnesota Aspiring Educators. Chapter organizations frequently cosponsor the program. We often provide door prizes or food for the meeting.
Code of Ethics information sessions. We discuss the Code of Ethics for Teachers, and how it applies to students in education programs and to teachers when they become licensed and employed. We share anecdotes to make the code more real to students.
Fall Student Leadership Workshop. We invite chapter leaders to a weekend retreat to meet other campus leaders, learn leadership skills and plan ways to make their campus organizations effective.
Education Minnesota Professional Conference. We offer free workshops specifically geared to the needs of student teachers and new teachers.
Spring Student Leadership Workshops. Newly elected leaders and their advisors meet with other state chapter leaders. We discuss Education Minnesota Aspiring Educators, network with one another and start planning for the following year's program.
National conferences. Education Minnesota's national affiliates provide funding for student leaders to attend the National Education Association's annual Student Leadership Conference and Representative Assembly and the biennial American Federation of Teachers Convention. Students are chosen by their peers in statewide elections.
Each November, the National Education Association hosts the Connections Conference to help students and staff connect around current education issues.
