If you are a teacher on leave of absence you may attend our convention!

During a leave, you are still an active member of your ATA local. As a result, you are entitled to attend your teachers’ convention. Be sure that you have paid your ATA dues for a teacher on leave ($4 per month for each month of leave). If you do not have an ATA member card you must come to the registration desk to receive a name badge. You can register on Wednesday between 1 - 5:00 p.m. or on Thursday or Friday during regular convention hours. MPTCA does not produce a booklet, information as to session offerings are located on our website.

If you are a substitute teacher you may attend our convention!

As soon as you teach for one day in any of our member locals you are an Associate Member of the ATA and are eligible to attend Convention at no cost. If you do not have an ATA member card you must come to the registration desk to receive a name badge. You can register on Wednesday between 1 - 5:00 p.m. or on Thursday or Friday during regular convention hours. Please have proof that you have taught during the current school year. MPTCA does not produce a booklet, information as to session offerings are located on our website. Since adult supervisors do not hold an Alberta teaching certificate they are not entitled to Convention privileges.
