The 2010 NEA Annual Meeting and Representative Assembly will be held July 1-6, 2010 in New Orleans, Louisiana. IEA members will elect 13 state delegates to represent Idaho at the NEA R.A. In addition, the IEA President is an ex-officio delegate with voting privileges and the IEA Vice President and NEA Resolutions Committee member are automatically delegates by virtue of their elected offices. The IEA Board encourages ethnic minority members to run for the state delegate positions.
The IEA Board of Directors has approved a list of tentative zones which is subject to change if final membership counts as of Jan. 15 differ significantly. Anyone who applies for a state delegate position and whose local is shifted when the final zones are approved in January will be notified. Retired members will vote separately for two delegates.
