Walnut Valley Educators’ Association
Member Benefits News
Welcome back to a new year. Hope the school year started smoothly. Please post the new member benefits poster on your site’s WVEA bulletin board.
Next, please inform members of the new dues amounts. WVEA dues did not increase. However, CTA and NEA dues did go up this year. The total for full-time members is now $1,038 annually which is $103.85 per month. For part-time members, the dues total is $554.55 annually which is $55.46 per month. *Please note: if anyone at your site has a new assignment (from part-time to full-time or vice versa), they must contact me to receive a new application to adjust their dues.
Please hand each member their membership card personally. Do not place them in mailboxes. If anyone has changes to their information, have the member make corrections and send it to me at Walnut Elementary via district mail. Please return cards for anyone who has retired, resigned, or is on a leave of absence. If a member is at another school, tell me before sending the card to the individual’s new location.
As a reminder, members are certificated employees including all classroom teachers, intervention teachers hired on a contract (not subs), speech/language pathologists, PE teachers, elementary ELSs, middle school SSRAs, and high school GLSs. It does not include principals, vice-principals, high school deans, psychologists, or elementary counselors. If any membership cards are missing, please inform me so I can contact CTA for a replacement card.
Application receipts for new members are also enclosed. Their membership cards will be forwarded to them as soon as they arrive.
Please let me know if you have any questions regarding membership and member benefits.
