What Are Specialist Councils?
The Association’s 21 specialist councils were created to foster the professional development of teachers interested in common curriculum or specialty areas. By organizing annual conferences, producing publications, maintaining websites and offering regional workshops and seminars, councils provide members with opportunities to share ideas and gather new information.
Each council is governed by an executive of volunteer teacher members who contribute their time, talents and enthusiasm to plan and implement programs and activities for the council. The Association plays a supporting role by contributing financial grants, providing publication services, hosting websites and offering administrative advice.
