Thoughts

What I learned about the UEA that surprised me:

I didn't realize how much the locals and UEA interact and rely on one another. Also, I didn't realize how much time and effort goes into affecting education policy in the political arena.

What I value most about the Association:

We can always work through any issue. The strength we have when we work together is amazing.

How members might begin to be more active in the Association:

Go to your local building meeting. Ask your AR or call y our local president and ask how you can help. Start with something simple that you're comfortable with and go forward from there.
