Hi all,

I hate to be a tease, but I am going to let you know that Region 3 will be holding a workshop in August that will help YOUR LOCAL plan and implement a successful membership drive to kick off the 2018-19 school year. 

We'll be encouraging you to bring a team of at least three people from your Local, so you can start thinking about fun people to bring along. Stay tuned for details!

--Peace

The Summer Summit is a once-a-year convening of all the people who care the most about what our public schools need to thrive and meet the needs of all students. This year's event promises to be the best one yet - with a full day of amazing breakouts led by experts on a wide range of topics, a keynote presentation from Jitu Brown of Chicago's Journey for Justice campaign, a Blue Ribbon Plenary Session with Rep. Joel Kitchens and Dr. Julie Underwood, a morning welcome from Superintendent of Public Instruction Dr. Tony Evers . . . and so much more!  Just announced: special guest speaker at the optional dinner will be Matt Rothschild of the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign. Stay tuned for the full lineup of breakouts and speakers - you won't be disappointed!  Click here to learn more - and register (includes lunch).
