President, Cheryl Brennan reports that teacher association events are returning to a face-to-face format, while several new event types that emerged during the COVID period are continuing in an online or hybrid format, which has provided added convenience and involvement of regional and remote teachers.
An ongoing challenge has been the high workload for teacher association leaders. APTA has a key role to play in supporting teacher association leaders to maximise their efficiency and effectiveness, for example, through sharing best practice approaches in our recent webinars on governance, social media strategies and sustaining and regenerating our subject associations. Please
speak to your state or territory APTA representative if you have further suggestions for how APTA can support teacher associations.
