President’s Message (November 2014)
Good day NTA Members
The fall always goes so fast. Like our members in the schools, we have also been very busy at the NTA. I would like to share some of our current initiatives.
We just finished our third training session for our School Reps and PD Liaisons. Our training sessions this year were in Cambridge Bay, Rankin Inlet and Iqaluit. Training for the SRs focused on membership protection and interpretation of many of the day-to-day procedures in the schools that come into question from time to time. The PD Liaisons focused on professional development and how it related to the funding and usage of the monies that are provided to us through Article 16 of the Collective Agreement. I would like to thank all SRs and PD liaisons for the fine work that they will do on behalf of all of the members this year.
NTA Strategic Plan 2014 – 2015
I am pleased to present you with our first formal Strategic Plan. A Strategic Plan is essential in order for all of us to have a clear understanding of what the role of the NTA is and what our members can expect from our Association. This Plan was developed with extensive input from the NTA membership and ratified at the Annual Meeting of Central Council in May 2014. Over the next year, again with extensive input from the membership, we hope to have an NTA Mission Statement to present to Central Council for consideration to include with the Plan.
Terry Young, NTA President
