2024 Retired Governance Elections Information
The nomination forms for the 2024 elections are now open. There are two nomination forms: one for Retired members seeking to represent Retired on the NEA Resolutions Committee, and a nomination form for all other candidates (Secretary, Executive Council, Retired members on the NEA Board of Directors, and Retired Board Alternates) because the nomination types have different qualifying criteria and filing deadlines.
Offices for which the “General Nomination Link” should be used:
- NEA-Retired Secretary (3 year term)
- NEA-Retired Executive Council (2 positions, 3 year terms)
- NEA-Retired Members on the NEA Board of Directors (2 positions, 3 year terms)
- NEA-Retired Alternates for the NEA Board of Directors (2 positions, 3 year terms)
Members running for a position on the NEA Resolutions Committee should use the appropriate link (six positions, 1 year terms).
After candidates file, they will receive information about the NEA-Retired elections process. If questions arise or additional assistance is needed, please reach out to NEA-Retired Elections Chair Steve Gorrie at [email protected].
