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.
