Central will be providing in-person training for members who are Building Reps for their Local Association. The training will take place on June 12th, with Breakfast and registration at 8:30 a.m. The training is expected to last 2-3 hours. Lunch will also be provided.
Interested members must register. To register:
Log in to your Central account at www.centraloeanea.org (or create an account if you don't have one)
Scroll to the "Building Rep Training" event and click "Going". Wait a short moment for it to register. That's it.
During this training with Amber James, building/faculty reps will learn about more than just the basics of their contract. The training will include a review of the professional code of conduct, social media considerations, how to represent members in meetings with administration and how to have one on one conversations with members. Practicing these conversations/representations is key to being a rep and merits more focused training. Recommended for new and newer reps, but experienced reps are welcome.
The Central Local retreat will be held from June 12th at Noon until June 13th at the Central office, with additional breakout space available at the Columbus Airport Marriott across the street.
Local Leaders who want their teams to attend are asked to complete the online registration here. You must answer how many are on your team, who they are, and their emails.
