NEA State Director to the NEA Board
(1 position available and still open for nominations)
Delegates to the WEA Representative Assembly elect NEA State Directors. NEA State Directors typically meet at NEA Headquarters in Washington, D.C. They are involved in critical decisions about Association policy related to public education and they help administer decisions made by delegates of the NEA Representative Assembly (the NEA’s highest decision-making body). Those elected to serve as an NEA State Director serve a three-year term (September 1, 2024 - August 31, 2027).
Nominations for these positions close on the floor of the 2024 WEA Representative Assembly. However, candidates wishing to be included in the WEA’s special election webpage must be nominated and submit their statement so that it is received at WEA headquarters by 4:00 p.m. February 9, 2024, via the online nominations site.
