Hundreds of IEA members will gather for IEA’s 2022 Annual Meeting and Delegate Assembly (DA) in Boise on Thursday and Friday. It will be the first in-person DA since April 2019 in Coeur d’Alene.
This annual business and policy-setting meeting is essential to the IEA’s work to support and advocate for all of Idaho’s educators — elementary and secondary teachers, education support professionals, school administrators, aspiring educators and retired educators. It is the most prominent example of the IEA’s democratic, member-driven ethos as an organization.
“Our Delegate Assembly is the essence of the IEA and its members,” said IEA President Layne McInelly. “Being together again after such a long and trying time for educators will be an invigorating and exciting way to turn the page and look to the future of our profession. I, personally, am very excited to see all of our dedicated and hardworking delegates in Boise.”
Delegates are elected through voting by local education associations, and each local conducts balloting independently and with their own timelines and procedures.
