Filing open for governing board, NEA director positions

Share on

Members interested in leadership positions within their state and national union should consider running for a seat on Education Minnesota’s Governing Board and the National Education Association’s Board of Directors.

The candidate filing for  National Education Association director 3 is now open. Candidate filings for Education Minnesota’s Governing Board election zone positions will open Nov. 7.

The current term for NEA director 3 now filled by Marty Scofield will expire Aug. 31, 2023. As a top decision-making body, the NEA Board of Directors includes at least one director from each state affiliate, as well as representatives from retired members, aspiring educators, at-large representatives of ethnic minorities, administrators, teachers in higher education, and active members employed in ESP positions. Candidates for this position will file a form by Dec. 9.

Education Minnesota is governed by an elected board, made up of a member from each of the union’s eight election zones and three at-large positions. Our governing board meets throughout the year to set dues, adopt a budget and carry out directives passed at the annual meeting.

The current three-year terms for all 11 seats will expire June 30, 2023. Candidates for the next three-year term (July 1, 2023-June 20, 2026) will file by submitting the filing form by Dec. 9.

All of these forms are also available to complete and submit electronically on the Education Minnesota website.
