NOTE: Conference registration is now closed. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com with any questions.
Intermediate Unit (IU) Leadership Conference
The PSEA IU Leadership Conference is a chance for the membership of PSEA's 27 IUs to work together to create positive change for their union. Areas of discussion will include resource development, increasing engagement of IU members, building local capacity, and planning steps for future improved relations.
PSEA is sponsoring two members per IU local to attend this year’s conference.
Minority Leadership Conference
MLT conference attendees may select from several breakout sessions designed to equip conference participants with the necessary skills to build strong local associations. First-time participants are encouraged to attend the Understanding PSEA breakout session. This session is specifically geared toward new leaders, or those who wish to learn the basics.
Unique to the MLT is the Minority Affairs Committee (MAC) Hearing. The MAC Hearing is an opportunity for members to express their concerns related to PSEA and how PSEA engages and interacts with its ethnic minority members. The concerns are recorded and presented to the PSEA Board of Directors for appropriate action. We encourage you to participate in this important part of the MLT conference.
This year’s conference will deal with the issues that urban local leaders face on a daily basis – prioritizing the crises, member advocacy, and how to build a strong local.
Women's Leadership Training
Participants will have two workshops from which to choose: WLT I: Skills for Emerging Leaders which is a series of sessions designed specifically for PSEA members who have had little to no Association leadership experience OR WLT II: Toolbox for Leaders which is a series of sessions that builds on the skills learned in WLT I and is designed specifically for PSEA members who have had some Association leadership experience.
