How the Representative Assembly drives WEA

RA_2015

WEA is a member-driven, democratically governed organization and the annual Representative Assembly (RA) is its chief policy making body. Once a year, local associations select more than 1,000 WEA members to gather for RA.

Local associations attending RA hold an election among their membership to select delegates. Each local is allowed to bring one delegate per 60 members or major fraction thereof.

The annual meeting, which has a look and feel similar to a major political convention, provides a forum where WEA members can collaborate, debate and vote. Individual members and local associations submit New Business Items, New Resolutions or Amendments to Continuing Resolutions, Standing Rules, Bylaws, and WEA Constitution, which, when passed, set the organizational priorities for WEA for the coming year. 

RA Forms and Procedures

RA delegates also elect the WEA President and Vice President every two years and NEA State Board Directors  when their varied terms are up.

If you have questions about RA, please contact WEA Event Planner, Jill Dahlen jilldahlen@washingtonea.org, 253-765-7088.


WEA Constitution and Bylaws

WEA's core governing principles are spelled out in our constitution, bylaws, and continuing resolutions. These key documents are debated and reviewed annually by the Representative Assembly.
