Biographical history

The Eastern Townships Association of Teachers was founded in Lennoxville in 1966. The Association's mandate is to protect the professional, economic, and social interests of its members, namely teachers in the Protestant schools of the Eastern Townships. Four local teachers' organizations (Compton County Protestant Teachers, Richmond-Drummond-Arthabaska Protestant Teachers, Sherbrooke County Protestant Teachers, and Stanstead County Protestant Teachers) merged in January 1966 to form the new association, which was recognized under the Labour Code and incorporated under the Professional Syndicates Act. The Association is run by an executive committee, the number of whose members varies, and various committees responsible for such matters as nominating, negotiating, professional improvement, educational policy and classification. Each school in the region names a shop steward. Delegates also sit on the Board of Directors of the Provincial Association of Protestant Teachers.
