Being a member, and now the chair, of the Education Committee has shown me that the members of Local 720 have a desire to learn more about our benefit plans, being a union member, and how many things work.

There should be a part-time staff member, or maybe full-time, who specializes in adult education and can run regular classes for the membership. The Education Committee could shift to helping a staff member run sign-ups and classes on a number of topics important to the membership of Local 720. Such classes could include:

As a Local, we would need to decide on a budget for hiring an educator. We would also need to set a priority for the classes we want to take at our Hall.
