Join Your Professional Association!
The UEA works to promote, advance, and protect public education, and the rights and interests of our members.
As a UEA Member, you will join your colleagues and state leadership as part of a collective voice, working to provide the best public education for all students. You will gain membership in both the NEA and the UEA, and also become a member of a Local Association upon joining. You can join at any time during the year!
The UEA is the largest public education employee association in Utah, representing about 18,000 active classroom teachers, retired educators, administrators, licensed educational support personnel and campus student organizations.
