The Fall Conference is always held in early October and highlights membership accomplishments and various aspects of keeping our members engaged in the union.
The Winter Conference is held in mid-February and focuses on collective bargaining. Since there is no Council meeting at the Winter Conference, it is an ideal time for bargaining teams and members to attend a conference dedicated to enhancing bargaining skills and coordinating bargaining strategies with other local associations throughout the state.
The Spring Conference is held in April and highlights advocacy. While we wish that politics did not play a role in education, we know that having effective advocacy in Sacramento, a well-informed membership, and local Boards of Trustees who support our faculty and students are critical to our success. At this conference, we also highlight our "We Honor Ours” (WHO) Awards winners. This is a special program which honors our own local and state union leaders.
