The KEA Student Program will hold an election in April, if necessary, to choose its voting delegates to the 2016 NEA Representative Assembly to be held July 2-7 in Washington, DC. Elected delegates also will attend the NEA Student Leadership Conference June 29 - July 2, which is also in Washington. The number of delegates elected will be based on KEA SP membership as certified by NEA on March 15, 2016.
Any member of the KEA Student Program who wishes to represent Kentucky as a delegate to the Representative Assembly and Student Leadership Conference must complete and submit the official nomination form to KEA Headquarters by 5:00 p.m. (EST) on Friday, March 25, 2016. The form is available at here.
If there are more nominations than KEA SP slots, an online election will be held at www.kea.org, beginning at 6:00 a.m. on Friday, April 1 and ending at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, April 8. If you are a member in good standing of the KEA Student Program you are eligible to vote in the election. To log in you will need to provide your last name, the last four digits of your social security number and the name of the county in which you attend school. The results of the election will be unlocked and posted on the KEA website on Monday, April 11.
Expenses to attend the meetings will be paid for by KEA for any student who is elected. Nominees must read the guidelines for delegates posted at www.kea.org and agree to be bound by them.
Completed nomination forms may be mailed to KEA Headquarters at 401 Capital Avenue, Frankfort KY, 40601. Or, they may be scanned and sent by e-mail to Karen.firstname.lastname@example.org; or faxed to (502) 696-8965. Only the official nomination form will be accepted.
