Election Result Report
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am thrilled to welcome another school year with opportunities to engage, educate, and empower our members.
Much like the goal of the work that you perform each day, enables students to achieve their dreams and to maximize their educational experience, WOEA's goal is to provide our members the tools and resources to maximize the professional experience.
We know that with the Janus decision, there are many questions about the future of our beloved union and our ability to stabilize membership. I believe that we will simply do as we have always done; recalibrate and determine our best course of action to meet the needs of our members.
Finally, I hope that your school year is off to an incredibly rewarding start and look forward to your attendance to our October Educator Appreciation Banquet and the November Member Fall Forum.
