General AEA Information

AEA/CTA/NEA Elections

We will be having two separate elections during the month of March:

  1. ALCOSTA Service Center Council Election for NEA-RA State Delegates. March 1 – 14.
  2. AEA’s Election for Executive Board and NEA-RA Local Delegates. March 6 – March 20.

The ALCOSTA (Alameda and Contra Costa County Educators) Election will take place March 1 to March 14 via email. ALCOSTA Service Center will be running the NEA-RA State Delegate Election via electronic voting. If AEA-CTA has your current non-school email on file you will receive an email from ALCOSTA Service Center on March 1. The email will contain a link that will take you to the secured voting site. Directions will be included in the email. The online voting process typically takes less than 2 minutes. All voting is completely confidential and no one – not even the company knows how you voted! All emails are kept confidential and CANNOT be used for any other purpose but ALCOSTA elections. Any AEA member who would prefer to vote by paper ballot can call 754-0300 and ask for a paper ballot to be sent through the district pony-mail to your site.

AEA will be running our own separate election March 6 to March 20 for Executive Board and AEA Local NEA-RA Delegates. This will be done via paper ballot. Your AEA site reps will distribute information and ballots the week of March 6. Ballots will be due on March 20.

Executive Board Elections

Each Spring, AEA holds an election to fill openings on the Executive Board through an election process as defined in AEA’s Standing Rules. Each position has a 3-year term. This year, four (4) positions on the Executive Board will reach the end of their term. The open positions to be filled, starting next school year will be: Vice President, Treasurer, Middle Schools’ Liaison, and Elementary Schools’ Liaison (1 of 2). You will find snapshot job descriptions of each position that is open, as well as, the NEA Rep Assembly Delegates in the January Insider.
