  • 1.  An Invitation to EdTA Emeritus and potential Emeritus members to Give Back to our Association

    Posted 10 days ago

     

    To all EdTA emeritus members and potential emeritus members:

     

    As the professional association for theatre educators, EdTA is dedicated to supporting teachers at all stages of their careers, from pre-service to retirement. Although you're no longer in the classroom, you may be interested in helping teachers in earlier stages of their careers or supporting association programs for students. Here are a few ways you can get involved:

     

    • Serve as a volunteer adjudicator for the Thespy Awards, other awards, scholarships, grants, and productions. When you apply online to adjudicate EdTA programs, you can indicate your specific interests.
    • Share your wisdom with other teachers. Participate in the Community Open Forum or Mentor Match. Take a new troupe director under your wing.
    • Volunteer to lead workshops or adjudicate at a chapter event. Reach out to your chapter director to learn about opportunities. Find your chapter director.

    EdTA recognizes your wisdom, depth of knowledge, care for other theatre educators, and value to our association. We hope you'll consider giving back.

     

    Not yet an emeritus member? See the benefits of joining.

     

    Thanks for your consideration.

     

    Gai Laing Jones

    Past President, EdTA Board
