Fellow teachers,

We are still three candidates shy of a full slate for the JEA Executive Board. The open positions are:

a high school member at large, and

two middle school members at large.

Please consider filling one of these important positions. Though the nomination period has closed, there can still be write-in candidates for these positions. I’ll make sure to notify our members of write-in candidates before the election, which will begin Friday. Please email me if you can run at jeamembership@gmail.com

Here is a link that describes some of the duties of these positions:
