MEA Executive Board Election May 7th!

Every two years, we need to have an election for our MEA Executive Board positions.

Here is a message from Marigrace Alonso, our Elections Chair :

“The elections nomination window for the MEA Executive Board positions is now open! Current seats up for election include: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and the 7 At Large positions. The MEA will definitely need at least one nomination for Elementary At Large because there is going to be an unfilled seat!

If you would like to add your name to the ballot, the window closes April 30, 2021. Please make sure to include a biography.

The election date will be May 7, 2021.”

Please let Marigrace Alonso (malonso@molineschools.org or 743-8941) know if you would like to add your name to the ballot!

Any positions that go unchallenged will not require a paper ballot vote.
