PD Opportunity: Leadership Essentials Speaker Series

The Alberta Teachers’ Association annually holds a Leadership Essentials for School Leaders Conference. Principals, assistant principals, associate principals and vice-principals who are within their first five years of their appointment, or who are new to the province, are eligible to attend.


This year, given the current circumstances we will be offering a six-part Leadership Speaker Series. All principals, assistant principals, associate principals, vice-principals and central office leaders regardless of the time in their respective roles, are welcome to attend.


There is no registration fee for the Leadership Speaker Series for those members of the Association holding the highest level of membership available to them in their leadership
role.

Information on Wellness Spending Accounts

Parkland has confirmed the addition of a WSA for their Teachers, effective September 1, 2020.  Our teams are in the process of finalizing this on system and the allocation emails will go out to all covered members on September 1, 2020, providing them with 90 days to make their credit allocations. 

Each employer group is responsible for communicating the addition of this benefit to their respective members and, as Jocelyn mentioned, we do have brochures (electronic or hard copy) that can assist with this.  Some employer groups are particular about how they are wanting to promote the WSA and given that it is an employer provided benefit, we felt that it is best for the employer to control the message that their covered members receive.

Questions about your Pension? 

 www.handsoffmypension.ca is a purpose built website to assist active and retired teachers to express their concerns about the Alberta Government's plan to transfer the assets of the Alberta Teachers' Retirement Fund (ATRF) to the Alberta Investment Management Corporation (AIMCo). The site includes a link to the ATA FAQ on the issue and a tool that will assist visitors to contact their MLAs.
