The EA Advisory Committee operates to create a sense of ownership in the work towards standards. Education Assistants are the the drivers of this work and your experience is invaluable.
The EA Advisory Committee and our larger Working Group is action-oriented and everyone has a role to play. We extend our working group to you because you are the experts in your own field and we need your voice. Equally important is that your colleagues need your voice to be at the table.
If you are hoping to be a listener, this advisory group will not be for you. We challenge you to bring your best ideas and suggestions, but need you to take those ideas and suggestions one step further into action.
At no point will you be asked to go against your union contract; this work is beyond the mandate of the union. Our Terms of Reference is our guiding document for collaboration and engagement.
