Membership, Muffins, and Massage Basket
Membership, Muffins, and Massage Basket

1.  Our goal this year is to make our membership stronger for middle school & high schools.  We are looking to find members to represent their building at our general membership meetings.  These meetings are held before events about 4-5 times a year.  We are only as strong as our membership.  We want to make our organization so much fun and beneficial to all our members. Professional development is very important with all the of new changes to education.

2.  Have you ever considered becoming a leader in your building?  It’s important to become involved in a professional organization (just look at your new teacher evaluation tool)!

When you join your local reading council, Two Rivers Reading Council, you also become a member of the Illinois Reading Council.  I believe the new teacher evaluation tool mentions something about being an ACTIVE member of a professional organization.  Now’s your chance…sign up and REPRESENT your building!

3. We want to know what you think!

Take our quick survey!
