Your voice and ideas have the power to shape the 2020 presidential election, and, in turn, the lives of your current and future students. NEA is already thinking of ways to ensure that the candidates address the needs of public school students and the 3 million NEA members who educate them.
Join NEA president Lily Eskelsen García for a tele-town hall about NEA’s plans for the 2020 presidential election.
We’ll talk about how you can get involved in making sure the next president addresses the needs of America’s public school educators and students and the tools and resources NEA is putting in place to amplify your voice.

Great job – you’ve done so much good work! Now, Illinois Representatives are back home and we need you to meet them while they’re home and tell them to Repeal the 3%! The Senate did it and they can too!
Next week—Wednesday, May 8—we will hold elections for RCEA Local Officers. There are four (4) officer positions up for election this year. If you are interested in nominating someone, including yourself, please notify Dave Newsom by this Friday, May 3, via school email. (As usual, if you are nominating someone, please check with him/her first, to make sure they are interested and able to serve.)
Hundreds of Illinois Education Association leaders (elected, appointed, emerging, and aspiring) will gather together this summer for training on leadership skills and abilities that make a difference for our students, our schools, and our communities. In addition, several professional development electives will be available.
The dates for the SLA this year are July 22-25, 2019.
