Region 6’s leaders are working to increase the region and state’s impact on NEA policy decisions by increasing the size and engagement of the region’s RA delegation. To encourage Region 6 locals to participate in the NEA RA, the Region 6 board of directors has approved funding to pay the stipends of five Region 6 NEA RA delegates.
Each local can select one member to participate in a lottery for one of the five funded slots by filling out an NEA Representative Assembly Funding Nomination Form and emailing it to Region 6 president Kirah Zeilinger. A lottery will randomly select one member from each of Region 6’s five zones to receive the funding.
The deadline for locals to submit member names to the Region 6 Executive Committee is March 15, 2019. The lottery selection will occur at the following executive committee meeting. If a zone has no potential delegates by the March 15 deadline, unselected members from all zones will be eligible to request the unclaimed funding.
If you have questions, email Barb Simpson or call the Region 6 office at 1-800-397-2287.
