Higher ED Elections

Dear IEA Higher ED Leaders,
I hope you had a great time off and are ready to face the new year and its challenges with creativity and resolve. I have three short opportunities that I would like you to share with your members and leaders.
The spring election forms are available on the IEA NEA website and were mailed to members within the last week in the IEA Advocate. There are several higher ed positions up for election. Electronic nomination forms will be available mid-January at www.ieanea.org/about/elections and are due February 22. They can be submitted either through the website or sent by certified mail.

  • Higher ed suburban section representative on the IEA board of directors
  • Higher ed suburban alternate to the IEA board of directors
  • Four higher education council seats

The IEA will sponsor members to go to the NEA Higher Education Organizing Conference March 17 – 19 in Dallas (https://ieanea.org/events/conference-request-for-funding-forms/). The deadline for the application is January 13. Please encourage your leaders to apply for the grant. It is an honor and it is a wonderful way to provide a national view on and strategies for higher education issues. For more information on the conference itself, please visit: http://www.cvent.com/events/2017-nea-higher-education-conference/event-summary-701c94c12f6946b3b6d39d25e458c23f.aspx.
The IEA will conduct professional development courses during the IEA – RA this year March 30 at the Sheraton Grand in Chicago. This is a great opportunity to for members to present a session for the purposes of professional development. Proposals are due by February 24. Please invite your members to participate in or run for these positions. You may direct interested members who have questions about these to me.
