San Diego- Strengthening local chapters through effective member engagement and advocacy was the overriding focus of this quarterly meeting of leaders, service center officers, and state council members.
Chairpersons representing regionwide community outreach, human rights, instructional and professional development discussed how putting member engagement a priority is in everyone’s interest in a post agency fee world.
Service Center Council chair Dave Szymanski introduced six guidelines that will determine the funding for local CTA Member Engagement Project Grants that will be approved through regional CTA management.
San Diego Service Center Council will also participate in town hall meetings on the issue of antiquated tax structures such as Proposition 13 that unfairly place the burden onto younger purchasers of homes while benefitting wealthy corporations. These “MAKE IT FAIR” meetings will be excellent community engagement opportunities for local chapters.
