Hi Everyone…As President of Cape May County Education Association, I wanted to let you know that it’s election time again. Your Executive Committee is the team that is responsible for putting together our calendar that is filled with professional development workshops, legislative meetings, “meet & greet” opportunities with legislators, as well as up-to-date workshops on the latest evaluation, bargaining and job related issues. Our team consists of elected officers, congressional and government-relations committee members and a delegate assembly member—who represents Cape May County at the NJEA Delegate Assembly meetings. Each position is elected for two years and this year we are electing the following postions: NJEA Executive Committee, Vice-President, Treasurer, Corresponding Secretary and Delegate Assembly Representative.
There are also many other opportunities to get involved as a NJEA member. Each local should have representation at our Legislative Action Team meetings and our Rep Council meetings. This is your chance to learn information first hand and bring it back to your local. NJEA also has many committees and we are always looking for interested members to serve on these committees as the voice of Cape May County.
If you are interested in an elected position, please let me know as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will also be taking nominations from the floor at the February 15th Rep Council meeting. Below are the job descriptions from our By-Laws and I would be happy to answer any questions you might have.
Thank you for all you do for the children of Cape May County!
