To assist it in the business of the Association, Provincial Executive Council maintains committees that address topics of concern to teachers and carry out various aspects of the Association's affairs. Each year, a number of practicing teachers are selected to serve on Association committees as well as to represent the Association on boards and committees of other organizations and provincial bodies (such as Alberta Education and education faculties).
Who is eligible to apply?
- All active and associate members are eligible to serve.
Nominees are selected to serve on the basis of their expertise, their commitment to the Association and, in some cases, their geographic location and area of specialization.
How many teachers are selected to serve each year?
- About 20–25 appointments are made in a year to maintain a degree of continuity.
Nominees may also be named to ad hoc committees and task forces that the Association may create throughout the year, as the need arises.
Applications for service on ATA committees in the 2018/19 school year will be accepted until March 31, 2018. Applicants will be advised in early July as to whether their application was successful.
