CCA HOMELESS INITIATIVE – Project Dignity Supports Our Homeless Students: CCA’s Homeless Initiative is supporting Project Dignity, a charity that serves people who are homeless. These people include our students – Project Dignity has helped community college students register for classes, has paid for books, and has provided food and housing. Project Dignity can ONLY use checks, cash, and grocery store gift cards. They cannot use clothing, bedding, pet food, or other bulky items, because the families they serve move quite often and by necessity travel light. We know that community college faculty have big hearts for those in need. Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated by these families.

DEPENDENT CARE REIMBURSEMENT: Dependent care reimbursement will be available per CCA policy and guidelines. More information will follow.

BARGAINING ACADEMY: The Bargaining Academy is an exciting and unique opportunity designed exclusively for chapter negotiating teams, not individuals, which will run parallel to the regular conference program. The Bargaining Academy will include training on essential bargaining skills, provide up-to-date knowledge on bargaining law and district budgets, all done in a very interactive, team-based session. The Bargaining Academy is limited to the first 40 participants who register. A minimum of two participants from a Bargaining team is preferred in order for a chapter to participate. The CCA Board has approved funding for up to seven participants per chapter (including delegates and non-delegates) as long as all seven attend the Bargaining Academy.  Advance registration is required. Please complete and return your Chapter’s RSVP Form to Karen Boll at kboll@cta.org by January 24, 2019.
