Please consider joining our association for some great professional contacts and free access to PD sessions throughout the year. The new membership form for 2016 is now available for download from the "Membership" page. Some changes have been instituted, including the option of receiving editions of the NSWHTA professional journal. Institutional membership will now apply only for groups other than schools, although a special Primary School rate has been included to encourage teachers from that sector to join the Association. Teachers at Secondary and College level will need to join as individuals. These yearly rates were set at our AGM this month.
