How Do I Become a Member?
Simple! Just download and complete the AEA Membership Form and return it (along with your dues payment or payroll deduction information) to Janell Ochs at Shumway Leadership Academy. You can also apply online through the NEA website.
All certified employees of the Chandler Public Schools may become active members of the Association upon payment of dues to the Chandler Education Association, Arizona Education Association, and National Education Association. Dues are typically paid via payroll deduction, and are taken out over 20 payroll periods during the course of the full membership year (September 1 through August 31). In CEA, dues are typically deducted from paychecks beginning in August and ending in May. If members join mid-year, they will start having their dues deducted immediately from their paychecks. For each deduction, dues are broken down as follows:
|NEA Dues||AEA Dues||CEA Dues||Total|
Dues may also be withdrawn via electronic funds transfer (EFT) at a rate of $31.50 over 20 withdrawals. Withdrawals will be made on the 15th and last day of each month, beginning September 15th and ending June 30th. Finally, members may also choose to have dues withdrawn via credit card, which will result in 10 withdrawals of $63.00 made on the 10th day of each month (beginning in September and ending in June). Membership shall be continuing unless written notification is given to the membership chair by September 1 of the current school year.
