Looking for something meaningful to do over our spring break? Please consider signing up to attend one (or both!) of AEA’s Days at the Capitol. There are two dates available during our break: March 12 and March 19. These are great opportunities to have direct conversations with your legislators and see the legislature in action (particularly the Senate Education Committee, which happens to meet on these days). There are also other days you can visit if you are available … check AEA’s website for full details.
The legislative session is well underway, and we’re reaching a critical point where activity will be fast and furious. We need to make our voices heard and keep the pressure on our legislators to keep moving forward toward restoring funding for education.
With all of the bills being considered, it can be tough to keep up, let alone advocate for our profession. Our Legislative Toolkit can help, giving you information on how to stay informed on what’s happening at the capitol and how you can make an impact on the process (including signing up for the Request to Speak system). Check it out today and become an education advocate!
Our election has now concluded, and our delegates and alternates for the AEA Delegate Assembly and NEA Representative Assembly have been determined. Thank you to everyone who voted, and special thanks to our candidates who were willing to serve as delegates to these important functions! The full results of our election can be found on our election results page.
