Political Action Committee (PAC)

OEA has its own PAC (Political Action Committee), which researches local education-friendly politicians and provides the information to members. The Political Action Committee (PAC) is a very specific legal mechanism for collecting and dispersing funds in a campaign.

Membership, Benefits and Social

We are updating rosters of members, making sure fee pay members are properly accounted for, and explaining the wonderful benefits that members receive, including legal representation and insurance benefits. Please consider helping our committee! We welcome your participation in becoming more involved to help make the union stronger. As we continue negotiations, it is extremely important that we be able to efficiently contact our own members and know where they are. It is also important that teachers that want full membership benefits have them and have the information to access those tremendous benefits. 
We also serve as the OEA Social Committee, organizing regular gatherings of OEA members as well as the annual Toy Drive and Rep/Retiree event. This is a busy, active committee, and we welcome your participation!

Members interested in joining in this important and necessary work of reviewing our current bylaws and standing rules and bring them up-to-date please contact me by phone or email.
