A New Year with Endless Opportunity

Happy New Year! As we look ahead, let us embrace the many opportunities before us to uplift the work of NEA-Retired.
Anita Gibson

We will focus on strengthening our committee work in areas such as legislation, membership, communication, and racial and social justice. We are expanding our governance, scholarship, and NEA Member Benefits committees to include more members.

We are committed to providing a path to leadership for those who have joined our ranks within the last 10 years by providing them with the opportunity to work side by side with our experienced retirees. This ensures our work will continue to make a difference. 

Our political action committee (PAC) co-chairs are already busy preparing fun and exciting ways to involve every retired member in voluntary fundraising activities, including in-person and virtual auctions, monthly credit card donations, and more. We have a chance to break all records as we prepare for the fast-approaching 2024 presidential election season.

This year, there will be plenty of ways for you to get involved in electing the next NEA-Retired leaders. Or maybe you’ll decide to run for office yourself! 

The 2024 NEA-Retired Conference will be held March 3–5, at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago, Ill. Members and staff will be able to network and hone their leadership skills as we build strong, thriving NEA-Retired affiliates. Attendees will also strategize about best practices to fulfill the conference campaign, “Promoting, Protecting, and Strengthening Education.” Register at

The 2024 Retired Annual Meeting, NEA Representative Assembly, and the U.S. presidential election each provide opportunities to take action to support our nation’s educators and students. Visit for updates. Remember, we are retired, and we are powerful!
