Center for Leadership and Learning

Leader & Member Training Program

CLL’s Leader & Member Training Program offers training modules designed by MEA UniServ directors, organizers and Headquarters staff on a variety of topics covering advocacy, bargaining, communications, professional issues, retirement planning and more. Originating from an NEA grant to help bring training to locals across the state, the Center for Leadership & Learning seeks to bring together the expertise and interests of staff and members to help build consistency and continuity across our statewide organization. See below for current offerings for virtual and in-person trainings.

To request one of these trainings for your MEA Local, contact your MEA UniServ director or fill out this form (we will work with your UniServ director regarding your request).
