This training is planned for Ethnic Minority and Emerging Leaders in our state. A series of workshops is geared to helping you understand IEA structure, the resources at your disposal, the skills you need to increase Association involvement, and assist you in developing a personal plan of action for long-term development and participation in the Association. You will also refine your organizational skills, develop your problem solving abilities, broaden your knowledge of education issues, and develop strategies that benefit your local organizations, schools, and communities.
Move, Debate, Vote the Fundamentals of Parliamentary Procedure and How You Use Them
This presentation will focus on the most important concept in parliamentary procedure – order of precedence – and the role of each of the parliamentary motions in proper parliamentary procedure. We will then discuss the proper steps for running a meeting, handling motions, and insuring optimum participation for members at a meeting. Participants will go through the nuts and bolts of the language of the association parliamentary procedure. You will also be able to engage in discussion of the proper use of parliamentary procedure and its relationship to other documents of the association. Participants will get a chance to practice parliamentary procedure through a role-playing activity. There will be time set aside to discuss questions from the participants on their personal experiences (local, state, and national) with parliamentary procedures both positive and negative uses.
The Impact of Racism from the Institution to the IndividualThis is not your standard diversity training; no talking heads, no questionnaires, no fault, no blame. This session is different. We'll ask questions, share experiences, explore our beliefs and challenge our assumptions. We will dig deep and hopefully leave with energy and a plan for continued investment in the awareness, knowledge, skills and actions that are necessary in a diverse society. Topics will include but are not limited to: Implicit bias, Institutional Racism and School to Prison Pipeline.
Message Strategies for Advancing Public EducationWhat is the best way to communicate the Association's position on public education issues? How can we use research-based, tested messaging to be more effective? What's the best way to respond to attacks on unions? These questions and more will be answered in an interactive and informative message training session for communicating with members as well as the public and news media. Message framework based on recent Association-led public opinion research will be shared. Participants will learn how to convey effective messages tailored to resonate with key audiences.
OrganizingConstant organizing of your members creates the foundation for a strong and active association. We will discuss the "organizing model" of unionism and why it is necessary to change the way we have operated in the past. Finally, we will share the most important tool at your disposal to effectively organize and engage your members.
