Nominations are accepted electronically starting 9:00am today, January 8, 2021, and close 7:00pm on January 22, 2021.
Access the Nomination Form HERE.
All nominations must be made by an SEA member in good standing.
Delegate Election Process:
As approved by the Board of Directors, SEA will send a delegation of up to 50 delegates (inclusive of seven automatic delegates) to the WEA RA being held April 15-17, 2021, and up to 20 delegates (inclusive of four automatic delegates) to the NEA RA being held July 2-6, 2021.
Delegates to the RAs play a key role in setting the direction of the work of the WEA and NEA for the next year. 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 send over 1,000 WEA members to gather for the WEA RA to collaborate, debate and vote on New Business Items, New Resolutions, and other provisions that govern the work of WEA. Delegates to the NEA RA perform the same key role at the national level to help set the work of the NEA for the following year. To learn more about the WEA RA and the role of a delegate, click HERE.
A formal notice of elections will be mailed to each member’s home address and will be posted on the SEA webpage. If your mailing address has changed in the last year, please email email@example.com with your current mailing address. Voting will be conducted electronically using your personal email address as part of the sign-in process.
Online voting will be open January 28, 2021, through February 10, 2021. The election timeline and guidelines are accessible HERE. SEA members will receive details on nominations and voting at their personal email address. If you have an update to your personal email address, please send the information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
