What does a THESA membership get you?
Access to THESA’s Facebook Group
As of April 30th, 2016, THESA’s Facebook Group will only be open to current THESA members. This active group has developed into a great professional development space where THESA members come together as a community, questions are asked and answered, and resources are shared. If you are a THESA member and would like to be added to this group, email our membership chair and request an invitation. New members will receive an invitation in a “Welcome” email from THESA.
The email listserve serves members with important information that would be of interest to all members (e.g. notification of the newsletter being posted, curriculum updates, etc.).
Printed approximately 3-4 times a year and sent directly to you, the newsletter contains websites, lesson plans, contacts, tried and true recipes, stories, helpful hints and more. Anyone is free to ask for information in the newsletter, write an article, or submit resources. Contact the Publications Editor for more information regarding the newsletter.
Discount on Registration for the Annual THESA Conference
THESA conferences (typically held on the October Provincial PSA Pro-D day) are a great place to network with other teachers from around the province. Each conference has many different sessions to choose from in all areas of Home Economics including Planning 10 and sometimes Tourism. You choose sessions that are of interest to you. Some sessions from previous conferences include: updates in nutrition, international cooking, cake decorating, vegetarian cooking, land and agriculture, global issues, chocolate making, food production, serging, pattern drafting, fashion sketching, fibers and fabric, fabric dying, weaving, batik, Textile Arts and Crafts projects, and various Planning and Family Studies topics.
Only THESA members may apply for the THESA scholarships. These scholarships are available to students who are currently enrolled in the post secondary Home Economics program and/or graduate studies.
Right to Vote
Only THESA Members may vote at the THESA Annual General Meeting, held each year during the Annual Conference.
