MSEA’s 2022 Elections

The challenges of the past months have brought extraordinary expectations, scrutiny, and pressure to public education and educators. As Maryland implements the Blueprint for Maryland’s Future and the most expansive platform of opportu­nities for students, educators, schools, and communities in a generation, we must keep our eyes on the prize and lead with confidence and authority.

MSEA’s elected leaders serve members as representatives by advocating before the State Board of Education and our elected state leaders in the General Assembly, and speaking up on the issues that affect our profession.

Active members may run for NEA Director (2 seats). Those elected will also serve as delegates to the MSEA and NEA Representative Assemblies.

Members may also run for delegate to the 2022 NEA Representative Assembly. Candidates for NEA Director may also run for delegate to the 2022 NEA Representative Assembly as an at-large or regional candidate.

Retired members may run for the Retired Advisory Council (3 seats) as well as delegate to the NEA Representative Assembly.

Aspiring educators may run for delegates to the NEA Representative Assembly.

The 2022 NEA RA will take place in Dallas, Texas, July 2-6, 2022.

Candidate information will appear on the official 2022 MSEA Election website on January 14, 2022 in alphabetical order per position sought.
