Member Benefits News
February, 2017

Dear Reps:

Here are several things for you to know:

Scholarship applications are now available. WVEA Members’ children, stepchildren, and grandchildren who are graduating May or June 2017 and will be pursuing post-secondary education, or who are currently enrolled in higher education and are not a previous recipient. There is no requirement that the student must be a graduate of the Walnut Valley Unified School District in order to apply. Applications are available in hard copy, are being emailed to all reps to share with their members, and will be available to download from the WVEA website.

All members in their first five years of teaching are invited to attend CTA’s New Educator Weekend March 10-12, 2017 in Irvine. Registration is $49. More details can be found on www.ctago.org

In addition, all members may attend the upcoming CTA Good Teaching Conference March 17-19, 2017 in Garden Grove/Anaheim. Registration is $185. Remember that you can request for WVEA to pay for you to attend this, or any other CTA sponsored, conference.

Please let all members know about CTA’s Institute for Teaching. The IFT grant is a resource to support strength-based teacher driven innovation on behalf of students and public schools. The grant is open to individual CTA members, small teams of educators, and affiliated local associations. Applications can be submitted through April 30, 2017. The awards will be announced in June 2017. More details are at www.teacherdrivenchange.org

Dear Reps:

Your action item for this month is to get all the members at your site to register on the following two sites:

Once they have registered on both sites, then explain the following:

  1. On the CTA Member Benefits site, have them make sure they have a current beneficiary listed for the free CTA Death and Dismemberment Insurance. This is one of the automatic benefits of membership.
  2. On the NEA Member Benefits site, have them make sure they have a current beneficiary for the NEA Complimentary Life Insurance. Again, this is an automatic benefit of membership.

Please let me know if you have any questions regarding membership and member benefits.
