> S T R AT E G I C P L A N N I N G Your Piece in the CTA Puzzle "I want an even stronger CTA. A CTA where everyone sees they have a role." So says fifth-grade teacher Chris Aguilar, who serves on CTA's Strategic Planning Group. Hear Chris and other members talk about the process at talkaboutplanning. The 55-member Strategic Planning Group is divided into internal and external committees. The internal committee is focusing on members, leaders and staff, surveying members in person, at meetings and online. Focusing on labor, education and community partners, the external committee is hearing from partners about public education and how they view CTA. They are also interviewing those who have suc- cessfully navigated the process. Yvonne Walker, president of Service Employees International Union Local 1000, and Jackson Potter, staff coordinator of the Chicago Teachers Union, were guest speakers last month. They discussed lessons learned in being member-centered organizations, the union movement's impact on communities as a whole, and making tough decisions for the betterment of the profession. The groups will analyze the research in a serious of four two-day work sessions. Ultimately, recommendations will be reviewed and acted upon by CTA's State Council of Education.
