This year, MSEA members will elect the MSEA Treasurer, four members to MSEA’s Board of Directors, and two members to the National Education Association’s Board of Directors (these leaders will also serve on MSEA’s Board of Directors). MSEA’s board meets eight times each school year; NEA’s board meets three times a year and during the NEA Representative Assembly. The more than 40 regional and state Delegates to the NEA Representative Assembly—this year held June 30–July 5 in Boston—are elected by each of MSEA’s 39 local associations. They’ll debate issues that impact public education and set the association agenda as well as policy and activities for the year ahead.
Voting closed on February 24.
Voting will be available through 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 24, 2017.
Below you will find the MSEA election results that were verified by the MSEA N&C Committee. Please be advised that since no candidate for the NEA Director (vacant seat) received more than 50% of the valid ballots cast, a run-off election is necessary between the top two candidates receiving the most votes for that seat.

The MSEA Treasurer receives and keeps an accurate account of all funds belonging to the Association; signs checks necessary to pay such expenses as have been approved by the president and the executive director or designated representatives; and prepares and presents a financial statement at the annual representative assembly of the Association.
MSEA’s Board of Directors is comprised of three officers, eight MSEA directors, and four NEA directors. The board is responsible for the fiscal affairs and general management of the association, the interpretation/implementation of policies, the preparation of the proposed two-year budget, and much more.
NEA’s Board of Directors consists of at least one director from each state affiliate plus an additional one for every 20,000 active members. With 72,000 members, MSEA has four NEA directors. NEA directors are also members of MSEA’s Board of Directors.
MSEA Delegate to the NEA Representative Assembly and Convention
Every year, MSEA members elect nearly 70 of their colleagues to represent MSEA as delegates to the annual NEA Representative Assembly (RA). These state delegates, plus delegates elected by each of MSEA’s 39 local associations, comprise the MSEA delegation to the RA. Over the course of the RA, they debate the vital issues that impact American public education and set association policy and activities for the year ahead.
