Fundraising Brainstorm Committee -

Hello everyone,

OCVTEA is looking for a couple of members to work on a small committee to brainstorm some fundraising or sponsorship opportunities to raise money for the OCVTEA scholarships we hand out at the end of each school year.

Please let Howard or Tiffany know if you would be interested.

Unfortunately, if we do not increase our scholarship fund, we will not be able to award these scholarships to each center in June.

Thank you to anyone that can volunteer a little time.

Notes from Tiffany - 10/23/17

  1. Our 2016-2019 Contract has been updated with Article 10 complete
  2. Attached is a document that highlights some important NJ School Law statutes. Please try to take 2 min and peruse the document to educate yourself.
  3. At the end of this school year, you will be seeing that some executive offices will be opening up. Prior to this happening, I would really like some new people to consider running for office and serving. The time commitment is not as much as you think and there is a ton of support from fellow executive members. If you have any interest, we could even have you come to a meeting or sit with one of the executive members and find out exactly what the job entails. As we start moving into another round of negotiations, it is imperative that we have a strong, committed executive council and negotiations team. As some of us get worn out…it is time for another crew to jump in and lead. Details regarding open positions and dates to follow.
  4. We will have our Annual OCVTEA Holiday Happy Hour. This is a super low key event and there is free food!
    • Friday, December 1st, 3:00pm to ???, the Tuscan House
  5. There will be an NJEA Dinner Meeting. The cost to members will be about $15 and will cover a full dinner and a Member Benefits/Stress management workshop given by an NJEA consultant. More info to follow.
    • Wednesday, February 21st, 4:00pm to 6:30pm, the Tuscan House
  6. We expect to have a Second Dinner Meeting. We are always looking for new and fresh ideas to get more members to attend, so if you have any, please email me!
    • Wednesday, May 23rd, details to follow
  7. Just a reminder, if you have an issue, please see your association rep first (building rep). If they need to contact an officer, the grievance chair or the internal affairs committee, they will do so.
  8. The Tuscan House
