President Scott DiMauro has called this Local Presidents +1 Summit on Saturday, February 1.  This meeting is designed specifically for local presidents along with another officer or member leader who has responsibilities for member engagement around political action.

This critical meeting provides time for local leaders to meet with colleagues, OEA officers and staff to discuss major legislative issues affecting our members and the stakes and organizational goals heading into the 2020 election. We will share effective strategies for engaging members around political issues that builds collective power at the local and state level.  Additional topics will include the latest on outside organizations (Buckeye Institute, Freedom Foundation, etc.) that are working to undermine labor unions in our post-Janus environment and strategies for effective fundraising for the OEA Fund for Children and Public Education.

Drawing on the best practices of OEA staff and leaders from around the state, local presidents will leave the Summit with critical information and organizing strategies for using legislative and political issues to build local capacity and improve the lives of our members and students.
