LAURA ISHIKAWA Santa Barbara County Office of Education Association This has been valuable, networking with local presidents in my region, and having time to talk about what's going on in their local and its impact on the county office. I have members working in every district you can imagine, so it's a good time to put faces with names. JOSE SEGURA Santa Maria Elementary Teachers Association Communications is important to me. I want my members to understand what's happening and see that the actions of the association are transparent. In meeting presidents I find out about what they're doing, what works, how are they communicating with their members, how they are most effective as presidents, and what I can do to bring some of that back to my association. PAOLA GILBERT Monterey Peninsula College Teachers Association I've learned about how to be a leader, to not do everything myself… how to delegate. There's a leadership and a management component to being a president. I've also learned details of what I need to know as a new president, from open to closed shop, terminology, from basic to intricate ideas. RAFAEL GONZALEZ Wasco Union High School Teachers Association I've learned how to become an organizer, how to be an effective representative, and how to handle difficult situations. It's good to make connections. It helps you realize you're not alone [in this job] — teachers can be strong and united once they get to know each other in situations like these.
