Member-driven committees examine educational issues

Serving on a union committee is a great way to share your expertise and further your profession. The standing committees of the CFT work on areas of interest to educators, ranging from special education to labor education. If you wish to be involved in union committee work, please contact your local union leaders to be nominated.

The committees meet several times a year, usually on Saturdays. Members are reimbursed for travel and will find expense guidelines in the document below.
