Faculty of Education students are associate members. They are encouraged to participate in Federation activities.
Each branch (school) has an elected executive. Branch executive members attend a variety of committee meetings. See your branch president for information on how to get involved at the school & committee level. Be sure to attend all branch meetings to stay informed.
Teachers' Council meets every four to six weeks. Each branch is represented by the branch president and teacher councillor. All members may attend as observers.
Ten executive members are elected at the Annual General Meeting.
