President's Message

We are all teachers and we always have lots to do! There are many easy ways to stay in touch with what your local (Local 48) is doing. You are already on our website so that is fantastic! Also visit us on Twitter @atalocal48, Instagram atalocal48, and Facebook ATA Local 48 - Fort McMurray.  We also have many rewarding and engaging committees that you can take part in: Council of School Representatives, Communications, Local Political Engagement, Professional Development Diversity Equity Human Rights, and Economic Policy Committee.


  Our local does a lot for you, the members! The local gives $10 per member for a school wellness submission.  Be active and eat healthy and use local money (your money, coming back to you!). We host Institute Day, an amazing professional development experience! We also participate in each trade show and show teachers out in the community.  We have prizes and draws at many of the local events (Annual General Meetings, Council of School Reps meetings). We hosted an administrator's gathering this year, and we will be hosting a mental health event. We want to give back! These are just some of the ways that we do.  Please let your local executive know if you have any other ideas! We would love to hear from you.
