On Friday, March 31, the early career member network’s Team North spin off group hosted a city crawl in Sparta that drew a sizable crowd despite the weather.
At the city crawl event, which was planned, marketed, and facilitated by early career members, participants visited three restaurants in Sparta. Different networking activities were structured at each location to show members how “The Union Has Your Back,” which was the theme of the event. Members enjoyed a brief presentation on the importance of understanding their Weingarten Rights and met with Bonnie Harber of California Casualty, an NJEA Member Benefits partner. California Casualty provided a door prize to participants.
This great early career member event was the first to occur in the Northwest. If you are interested in helping to facilitate events for early career members in the northeast or northwest, reach out to Team North at firstname.lastname@example.org.
