This week – a quick reminder for two events happening today.

  1. HEA RA Elections close at 5:00PM
  2. RECN Equity Conference starts at 6:00PM
Dear Supporter,

Please honor the work and those listed below who are volunteering to serve as delegates representing HEA at the upcoming assembly meetings. Currently less than 10% of HEA members have voted in this contested election.  Voting is electronic and closes at 5PM today (February 4) for the NEA & WEA Representative Assemblies. 

On Monday, a Ballotpoint Electronic Ballot was sent to your home email address on file with WEA.  Voting is available 24 hours/day until 5PM on February 4.  If you have challenges with your ballot, please check your spam filters.  After that, contact LFleck@WashingtonEA.org to update your personal email address on file.  Thank you for taking the time to vote this week. 

Our amazing HEA members who are stepping up for these important roles thank you for setting aside time this week to vote in the HEA Elections.

Watch for a full newsletter on Monday!
