Are you a CTA member and educator of color? Interested in broadening your knowledge of your union and exploring leadership opportunities? CTA’s Ethnic Minority Early Identification and Development (EMEID) program may be for you.
EMEID’s goal is to increase the number of BIPOC CTA leaders in roles such as president, bargaining chair, State Council delegate, Service Center Council chair and other positions. The program builds on existing CTA/NEA programs, trainings and conferences and incorporates interaction and coaching with local chapters, CTA and NEA leadership and CTA staff.
Applications for the 2023-24 EMEID cohort are being accepted now through April 7. Those selected must commit to attend the EMEID orientation on Sat., July 22, as well as the Emerging Leaders Program at CTA’s Summer Institute held Sun.-Thurs., July 23-27. For details and to apply, visit cta.org/emeid. Pictured above: the EMEID 2022-23 cohort.
