This year’s 38th NEA Retired Annual Meeting was held virtually on June 23-24, 2021. Virtually means that each and every one of the aHendees could attend in their own homes, offices, etc. For myself, I aHended in my rumpled, but clean, house clothes . Virtually also means that access to a bathroom was steps away as opposed to sometmes being literally in the next building of a Convention Center.

The council met by Zoom for several days this past June to finalize the NEA-R Annual Meeting. (June 23-24, 2021). At the Annual Meeting Zoom was NOT used-there were snafus, but we managed.  And in the midst of it all, our own ED MN-R Walt Munsterman received the NEA.R DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARD.  Way to go Walt!!  We are proud, proud, proud!!!

2017 Legacy Project

                        By Bobbie Margo

Since 2015, NEA has replaced “OUTREACH TO TEACH” – (remember “OUTREACH” was a school make-over in a day) with “THE LEGACY PROJECT.”  “LEGACY” stands for “Leaders Empowering Grassroots Advocacy for Communities and Youth.”  The project aims to organize, to educate, and to lead change for the communities of parents and of students that our educators serve.
