In times of need, the GNTA Financial Aid Fund has been there to help our members recover from theft, fire, and damaging weather. Last year, the Fund substantially assisted no fewer than 10 members who suffered devastating losses from Hurricane Sandy. The Fund is separate from our dues and relies on non-tax deductible donations from our members. The GNTA Executive Board is asking for your help in replenishing the Fund. Please send your check, made out to the Great Neck Teachers Association Financial Aid Fund, to the Cottage. Thanks in advance for your generosity.
With a poster printer, a new top of the line laminator and much more, the AV Center is ready to help you decorate your classroom or create the material for that perfect lesson. Visit the AV Center online for more information.
Members of GNTA and our affiliates attended NYSUT's Leadership Conference at Gurney's Inn in Montauk on October 25-27. We spent the weekend attending workshops on Leadership Styles, Member Mobilization & Strategic Planning, Communication Skills, Everything is Political, Frontline Representation, and learning how to Talk Back-Fight Back.
