Governance

MSTA Bylaws

MSTA Board of Directors

Each MSTA region or district elects members to represent its area of the state. The number of members in each region determines the number of board representatives. The Board of Directors, which guides the work of the association, is made up of at least one classroom teacher from each region.

State committees

MSTA has five committees at the state level: Education Policy; Articles, Bylaws and Rules; Communication Awards; Reading Circle; Retired Members; and Student Members. Most committees are made up of at least one representative from each MSTA region.

Assembly of Delegates

More than 1,000 members determine MSTA’s legislative agenda at the association’s annual meeting. Delegates are elected by local CTAs.

Regions

The state is divided into 10 MSTA regions. Officers and committee members from each region help shape MSTA policy, host legislative events and offer professional development opportunities for members through regional meetings.

Local CTAs

Community Teacher Associations provide a unified voice for the MSTA members who work in a particular school district. Most CTAs have salary, legislative, public relations and professional development committees to represent their specific needs.

Leader training

The MSTA Leadership Conference, held each Summer at Tan Tar A, provides the resources and training that help foster successful CTAs. In addition, a monthly newsletter, MSTA Connect, supplies leaders with the information and tools they need.
