For an emergency situation, you may contact the HCAFA President via email (hcafapresident@gmail.com) or IEA's central office in Springfield at https://ieanea.org/ieaconnect/ for telephone and live chat during their limited weekday hours as well as the email option. 


Want to become involved in HCAFA, your union?!  Don’t want to commit to a lot?  How about one 2-hour meeting a month?  We are looking for three adjuncts to attend Region meetings.  HCAFA is part of Region 42 which is our IEA area.  In our Region is also the Palatine K-8 teachers, bus drivers, Harper Adjuncts, Harper custodial/maintenance, and ESPs.  Meetings are interesting, fun, and there are often guests from IEA or other Regions giving presentations on various aspects of IEA and political issues.  Write up a quick report of what was said, give it and any handouts to one of the executive committee, and that’s it!

We are allowed to have 3 people on the region council so you won’t be alone!  If you are interested, please send an email of intent to Taimi Wilk, our elections chair, at taimiwilk@comcast.net

or drop a letter of intent in the mail to:

Taimi Wilk



553 N. North Court, Suite 210

Palatine IL 60067

In your email or note you should include your contact information as well as a short statement of why you are interested.  We must have your notification of intent to run for region council by August 1st!!!!!  This is an elected position as per IEA rules!

On August 13th, at the regularly scheduled Executive Committee meeting (1-3pm at the Palatine office at the address above), we’ll be voting on who will be our representatives.  Our Executive Committee meetings are open to all so please stop by and vote!
