I’m pleased to announce that the federation will be participating in AFT-Oregon’s second annual Member Organizer Development Program (MOD-P), a training and development opportunity for PCCFFAP members (that’s you!) who are ready to take their organizing skills to the next level and build our union for the future.
MOD-P is a 6-week program that teaches organizing skills through real-world experience in concert with staff and local leaders. Members who participate are supported through a work stipend that reimburses them for lost wages, and help securing release time from our employer.
We are looking for members who are interested in using this development opportunity as a way to jump-start or deepen a long-term involvement with our federation. Does that sound like you? Read on …
Program highlights include:
Attend a three-day organizing training with other MOD-P participants from other Oregon educational institutions
Get real-world field experience under guidance from professional organizing staff
Regular team meetings with other MOD-P participants to compare and learn
Establish and build organizing practices for our federation
Admittance into the program is competitive and will be based on an application and interview.
Thinking of applying? Want to talk more about it? Send me an email now and I can help you apply before April 17.
Frank Goulard, PCCFFAP President
