Retiring?

 
 

GGEA's Retirement Committee started working on the Retirement Tribute back in September. Venues are booking up fast. The GG Community Center was already booked.

The committee would like to have an idea on the number of future retirees (June 2022) in order to determine the size of the venue needed.

If you are going to be retiring this year, GGEA would love to hear from you.

Please call the GGEA office and let us know. We're just taking a count for now.

 
 

NEA RA

 
 

Under a separate AdNote sent earlier this week, GGEA is seeking interested members to be representatives at the National Education Association's Representative Assembly this summer.

The National Education Association Representative Assembly–the RA–is the highest decision-making body within the over 3 million-member NEA. With over 8,000 delegates, the RA is also the world’s largest democratic deliberative body.

Over the course of eight business sessions spanning four days, RA delegates debate the vital issues that impact American public education and set Association policy and activities for the year ahead.

Declaration of Candidacy at the state level, no later than January 28.

A fillable pdf is also available on the GGEA webpage.
