Sample Enrollment Form Fall 2013
You become eligible to join the union when you teach at least 3 credit hours per semester (excluding the summer session) for four consecutive semesters.  Actually you are eligible to join at the beginning of the fourth semester.  You should get an enrollment form and information about joining HCAFA  in the mail from us at the beginning of the semester that you become eligible.  If you do not join, you will be required to pay a Fair Share Fee.  [There are exceptions for long-term Harper employees.]

Above is a sample enrollment form (click on the link).  To get an enrollment form, to ask questions,  or to update your information, please contact us using the form below and include your contact information!  We will get a form to you ASAP. If you already have an enrollment form and have filled it out, you can send it to Janice Cutler in the Math/Science Division through interoffice mail.

Some important notes:

1. Non-Harper e-mail address is important because the College will not allow us to use the Harper email system for union business.

2. The social security number is important to help us find adjuncts who are already paying dues at another institution. The member may elect to withhold it.

3. We occasionally use US Mail to contact members, so a current US postal address is important, and members should notify us of any change in contact information.

4. Members do not have to fill in the dues information in the center of the form. The Membership Records Keeper will complete the information, sign as Association Representative, and return the member copy (gold) to the new member. Unless the member writes in a $10 contribution for NEA FCPE, it will be assumed they elect NOT to make this contribution.

5. If a new member is already paying IEA/NEA dues at another institution (for example, Oakton, COD, Roosevelt, or a K-12 school), they should indicate that to us, with or on their enrollment form. In that case, they pay only LOCAL dues of $15 a year to us.

6.  Make sure you fill out the upper third of the form as well as sign and date the bottom!  All remaining spots on the form are either optional or will be filled in by the records keeper at HCAFA.
