The NEOEA website is under construction. Please bear with us as we transition to our new webpage, due in spring 2015.

Megaconference 2015: Join us at our next Megaconference, offering your choice of 35 different sessions of leadership development, personal development, and professional development--planned by members for members and their families. The $15 registration fee includes your choice of programs as well as breakfast and lunch, but members can get in for free with a coupon from their local president. More details are available at our "All Things Megaconference" page.

Community Involvement Grant: Strengthening the relationship between a local school employee union and its community is a key element in building a strong and successful local association. Nothing cements these relationships like working together to benefit others in the community. Participation in community events also offers affiliates the opportunity to enhance their visibility as vital, contributing members of their communities. Find out more about our Community Involvement Grants.

NEOEA Day: Our next NEOEA Day is Friday, October 16, 2015. NEOEA Day represents your dues dollars at work. Attending NEOEA Day programs, most of which provide growth opportunities at lower-than-usual prices, is an excellent way to get some of your NEOEA dues dollars back! For more information, go to:

NEOEA Nomination Form/Letter of Intent for Elections at the Spring 2015 RA: Board of Directors positions will be filled in elections at the NEOEA Representative Assembly on Saturday, April 25, 2015.

NEOEA Friend of Education: In 2014-15, NEOEA will seek to recognize its fifth Friend of Education. NEOEA's members and local affiliates are encouraged to nominate individuals and/or organizations who would be worthy recipients of this honor. If a Friend of Education is selected, NEOEA Representative Assembly delegates will recognize the honoree on April 25, 2015.

Green School Award: Created by NEOEA’s Environmental Concerns Committee, the Green School Award honors schools within local affiliates that are leaders in environmental education.

Positive Image Award: Does your local association do anything which enhances the image of your members, your school, your school district, or public education in general? Have any of your local members developed activities work-related or not? Have you? If so, then you should consider applying for a 2014-15 Positive Image Award.

President Kim Richards — The State of Education in Our State: What It Means for Us: NEOEA is the largest OEA district association in Ohio. We are a membership of 31,000 dedicated education professionals — elementary and secondary teachers, university professors, DD professionals, and support staffs proudly serving students attending Ohio's public schools and universities in northeast Ohio. NEOEA includes 192 individual locals. Our organization has been in existence for 145 years — nearly as long as OEA and NEA! NEOEA Day — formerly NEOTA Day — was established years ago by teachers to provide professional development for teachers — long before the administrative establishment ever thought of such a thing. We have the most delegates of any representative assembly in any other district in the state. So why am I reciting all of these facts and figures? Because I am compelled to point out an inconvenient truth that goes along with all this.
