In the past, summer in the Tarrytown region has typically been synonymous with training. With our Summer School program and the Summer Leadership Conference, union leadership training and professional development have always been a priority. These days, it is not business as usual. That said, I am pleased to announce the on-line summer training schedule for the Tarrytown Regional Office.
This summer, we will be offering 27 different webinars. There are up to the minute topics such as Distance Learning Issues and Union Leadership in a Virtual World. We will also address issues in the news with Racial Justice for Educators and Combatting Racism to Build Union Power. There will also be webinars to address the importance of politics with a Lobbying 101 webinar and Navigating Political Discussions Among Members. To help support your newer officers and building reps, we will be doing Building Rep, Negotiations and Grievance training in one-hour blocks. All webinars will be done at no cost to the local or the individual.
Most webinars will be offered twice over the summer to accommodate everyone’s schedule. The training will run on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays of each week, beginning July 7. All will start at either 9 am or 4:30 pm and will run approximately 1 hour.
As we all shake off the fatigue of the past 100+ days, I am sure that many of you, and the other leaders in your local, will venture out of the house and perhaps take a vacation. This training format will allow for everyone to participate, no matter where they go. At the bottom of this e-mail, you will find a link to the Tarrytown Learning Center website, where you will find a short summary of each webinar offered, as well as the registration form. Upon our receipt of your completed form, registrants will receive a confirmation e-mail and, the day before the session, a link to join the webinar. Please feel free to contact me or your LRS if you have any questions. Please also forward this link to the other leaders in your local.
