3/17/21 – JCEA election results and increasing plan time

Congratulations Ernest and Dale!

Dale Munholland has been re-elected to his current position of JCEA Vice President and Ernest Garibay has been re-elected to his current position of JCEA Treasurer. Our election results have officially been certified by our election committee chair Melissa Roach. We look forward to continuing to advocate on behalf of JCEA members with these two rockstar leaders!

Congratulations Christine and Ami!

Ami Prichard and Christine Trujillo have been elected to attend the NEA RA as self-funded JCEA participants. NEA RA brings together thousands of educators from across America to continue to advocate on behalf of educators, students, and public education.

Up next: JCEA action team chairs

Three JCEA action team chair positions are currently open for nominations. Action team chairs take a deeper dive into a specific area of advocacy and action within Jeffco and beyond. Every action team also works to support the broader strategic plan to empower our members, improve educator working conditions and student learning conditions and continue to support and champion public education. While each team has an ongoing plan and work there is an immense opportunity for new action team chairs to bring their own energy, ideas, vision, and goals to the work moving forward. All action team chairs also sit on the JCEA operational board, which is charged with growing and building our union and achieving the goals set by our membership and elected leaders.

Nominations are due by April 13th (for PAT and ECEAT) to Melissa Roach by 1:00 pm AND/OR nominations can be made from the floor during our April JCEA AR Council on April 13th starting at 4:30 pm. The JCEA AR Council will be voting on the PAT chair and ECEAT chair in our April meeting and the EMOAT chair nominations will be open through May 11th at 1:00 pm or on the floor in the meeting and then elected in our May AR council.
