This year’s NEOEA Day is Friday, October 11, 2019. 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!
The educators who established the North Eastern Ohio Teachers Association in 1869 could not have anticipated many of the changes which have happened in our profession: higher academic standards for teachers, educator unionization, high-stakes testing, and the inclusion of classified staff alongside classroom teachers.
Most of NEOEA’s local affiliates have contracts that reserve NEOEA Day for professional development activities, and many local school districts call the NEOEA office to learn the dates of future NEOEA Days. NEOEA Day will take place on:
- October 11, 2019, and
- October 9, 2020.
As always, NEOEA seeks providers of quality programs for the upcoming NEOEA Day. The process of planning NEOEA Day begins in the spring, as NEOEA staff sends Requests for Proposals (RFP) to an extensive mailing list. Members who know of a potential NEOEA Day program provider who is not receiving the RFP packet should encourage the provider to contact the NEOEA office at 216-518-0200 or 800-354-6794 to receive an RFP and be placed on the distribution list.
