MSEA’s Summer Leadership Conference helps educators lead in their schools, locals, and communities

MSEA’s 2017 Summer Leadership Conference at Salisbury University (July 18–21) brought together activist members from across the state to build the skills they need to fight for change and progress in public education. Eight different three-day schools focused on advocacy, conflict management, contract bargaining, leadership development, empowering leadership, grassroots organizing, union organizing, and restorative practices.

Below, you can meet some of the newest Summer Leadership Conference graduates and hear about why they came, what they learned, and how they plan to use their new skills.
