Register now for NEA’s Skills for Emerging Leaders Training

HSTA’s Windward Chapter invites teachers across the state to register for free leadership training provided by NEA this fall. We need at least 30 members to register by May 19 in order to receive the training from NEA experts.

NEA’s Skills For Emerging Leaders Training will teach you important leadership skills, including how to effectively communicate, how to make decisions in a diverse group, elements of effective leadership and how to use those skills to make changes. The training will also teach participants about social justice and the history of the NEA.

The training starts late in the afternoon (4 to 8 p.m.) on Friday, Nov. 3 and continues all day from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 4 at HSTA’s Red Hill headquarters on Oahu.

There is no cost. Neighbor island chapters: travel costs are not included.  See if your chapter will pay your air and hotel costs. Dinner, breakfast and lunch will be provided.

The number of participants is limited to 40 teachers. Upon completion of the training, participants receive a certificate for their core professionalism evidence.

Registration deadline is May 19. To register, email your name, school, email address, phone number and any dietary restrictions directly to HSTA Windward Chapter President Bobbye Yamamoto at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Yamamoto said, “NEA’s Women’s Leadership Training Program has been instrumental in helping me to decide to run for chapter president over ten years ago. Before I became a trainer, I would NEVER have thought to run. But, having learned the materials we train, and from the training experience, I got the confidence to try. The training modules give our members the skills to organize and lead school buildings, chapters and districts to become effective groups advocating for good quality schools.”

HSTA’s Windward Chapter is paying for the trainers’ hotel, meals and ground travel; NEA is paying for their air fare.
