Local Lodges are encouraged to send their enrollments early for the 2010 Spanish Leadership programs. Building upon the success of the Leadership I and II programs offered in Spanish, the William W. Winpisinger Education and Technology Center is proud to expand the educational opportunities available for Spanish speaking members with the addition of the Spanish Advanced Leadership pilot program:
Spaces are available for all three programs, which cover the same subjects included in the regular Leadership programs but with all classroom instruction and materials in Spanish. Enrollments in the Spanish programs do not count against a lodge’s regular Leadership program allotment.
Any member who has taken Leadership I, in either Spanish or English, is eligible to take Spanish Leadership II. Likewise, any member who has taken Leadership II, in either Spanish or English, is eligible to take Spanish Advanced Leadership.
“These Spanish Leadership programs build upon and expand the educational opportunities available for all our members,” said International President Tom Buffenbarger. “Membership education is one of the things that set the IAM apart from other unions – the IAM is committed to ensuring that members, officers and activists have the skills and tools they need to effectively protect the membership in a rapidly changing world.”
