Hosting an NEOEA Day Program


As an NEOEA member, we welcome your participation in offering programs of interest related to your area of expertise to members in and around your local. Please submit your proposal by Friday, April 9.

Public Relations Mini-Grants

Free money for your members! Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? Well, in this case, it’s good, and it’s true! The North Eastern Ohio Education Association invites you and your local association to receive some of your NEOEA dues dollars back in the form of the annual NEOEA PR Mini-Grant.

NEOEA’s Public Relations Committee budget sets aside $12,500 to provide grants of up to $250 to local associations. Your local association may use one of these grants for a public relations project that will promote a positive image of your association within your community. Grants are awarded based on the public relations benefit to the community and/or the association demonstrated in the application. Please be sure the primary purpose of the funding is to provide exposure for your association outside the school and in the community.

Why not take advantage of this opportunity to enhance the image of your local association within your community? To do so, complete the simple, one-page grant application provided. Your application must be postmarked by January 10, 2020, and must bear at least two signatures from among those of your local president, PR chairperson, or treasurer. E-mail applications received by the due date will also be accepted if accompanied by e-mails from at least two of the signers listed on the application form. Recipients of the grant will be informed by the end of January 2020.

Local affiliates which send at least one delegate to the fall NEOEA Representative Assembly may apply for a second grant involving an additional public relations activity.

Proof of completion of the activity is required, such as a program, photo, news article, receipt, etc., and must be sent to the NEOEA office by December 1, 2020. Eligibility for future grants is dependent upon the provision of proof.

The number of grants actually awarded is affected by the number of qualifying applications received. NEOEA cannot guarantee that all qualified applicants will receive grants.
