Summer Seminar registration opens May 1

Save the date for Summer Seminar, Education Minnesota’s flagship professional development retreat, this Aug. 3-5.

Education Minnesota is excited to announce that during this year’s Summer Seminar, we’ve expanded our course offerings. That’s right – more professional development. More ideas to build a powerful local union. And based on your feedback, we’re offering even more member-led courses. This is an opportunity to gain professional development created by educators, for educators.

Summer Seminar takes place during the first week of August each year at the College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph, Minn. All Education Minnesota members are invited to attend for three days of personal and professional development, an opportunity to connect with other educators from across the state and have fun!

The seminar will have a multitude of courses that fall into these main strands:

  • Bargaining and negotiations
  • Know your rights! Legal rights and responsibilities for educators and union leaders
  • Leading and growing your union
  • Minnesota Educator Academy: professional practice
  • Personal finance and wellness
  • Policy and politics
  • Voluntary unionism: Thriving after the Janus decision

Registration opens online May 1 at www.educationminnesota.org. The deadline to register is July 17.

Local union presidents will receive more information about Summer Seminar when registration opens. Please contact your field office or Sam Jasenosky for more information.
