Our School Council Tip Night & Social offers the opportunity for school council members to come together and learn more about their roles and to network with other councils. Tip Night is offered yearly. Information from previous sessions is posted below.

Don't forget to also view Resources for School Councils and Best Practices for School Council Treasurers. And join us for a CSPA Meeting to continue the conversation!
