President's Message

As President I invite you to join the JCQTA for 2019. There are many challenges and opportunities facing professional teacher associations in areas of professional learning, curriculum implementation and funding for education. The JCQTA provides a voice to teachers through professional association representation at both state level and at a federal level through the Australian Professional Teachers’ Association (APTA). In meeting the challenges and grasping the opportunities it is important that we support one another and work collaboratively to achieve the best outcomes for Queensland students.

Our two major annual events are the Presidents’ Dinner in February and the Ros Korkatsis Annual Forum in August. Committee meetings are held bi-monthly on the 3rd Wednesday which in 2019 will be on 17 April, 19 June, and 16 October. In order to present a united voice on issues that affect us all we require a representative from all our member associations to attend these meetings.

I welcome you and look forward to working together to support the great work you do for your members.
