NEA/MTA ANNUAL MEETING DELEGATES


Those members who wish to seek the position of NEA and/or MTA delegate must declare their intention to run for election by submitting a completed nomination form to the NTA office by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, March 22th, 2024. 

 


The nomination form is available by clicking here.  NOTE:  A member may be a candidate for delegate to both the NEA and MTA meetings.  However, in order to be a delegate for the NEA meeting, one MUST also attend the MTA Annual meeting in Springfield in April.



The 2024 Annual Meeting of MTA will occur on April 26 - April 27, 2024 in Springfield, MA.  The NTA may send delegates who are elected by the membership; the number of delegates to be sent will be determined by the MTA based on March 1, 2024 membership numbers and will be known by the NTA as of March 2, 2024.  It is anticipated that there will be approximately 42 delegates.  Alternate delegates will be elected at the same time and in the same manner that will be followed in electing successor NEA delegates. (see above)



Eligibility:  Delegate candidates to the MTA Convention may be members of any


NTA unit (A, B, C, D or E) and must have been a member of NTA/MTA/NEA as of January 15, 2024.


Procedure:  Anyone who is eligible may become a candidate by selecting "MTA Delegate/Successor" on the NEA/MTA DELEGATE NOMINATION FORM by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, March 22nd, 2024.


Responsibilities:  As a delegate to the MTA Annual Meeting, you are expected to attend the Friday afternoon business session (begins at noon until about 5:00) and the all-day Saturday business session (9 a.m. until close of business) of the meeting.  You are able to use an “other” day for attending the Friday session (see contract).  The NTA will provide delegates who attend in person with travel stipends.


Please Note: MTA hotel reservations in Springfield open March 3.  Click here for more information.



The 2024 NEA ANNUAL MEETING (Representative Assembly) will occur from July 3rd through July 7th, 2024, location Philadelphia, PA.  The NTA may send up to thirteen (13) delegates who are elected by the membership.  Candidates for delegate positions who receive insufficient votes to be elected will, if necessary, become successor delegates and will fill vacancies in the delegation in order of the highest number of votes received.


 

Eligibility:  Delegate candidates to the NEA Convention may be members of any NTA unit (A, B, C, D or E) and must have been a member of NTA/MTA/NEA as of January 15th, 2024.


Procedure:  Anyone who is eligible may become a candidate by selecting "NEA Delegate/Successor" on the NEA/MTA DELEGATE NOMINATION FORM and completing the form by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, March 22nd, 2024.


Responsibilities:  Delegates should plan to attend at least seven (7) of the eight (8) business sessions of the NEA representative assembly.  Additionally, delegates attend morning caucus meetings of the MTA delegation.  Both the MTA and the NTA provide delegates with travel stipends.


 


Both NEA and NTA reaffirm the commitment to the goal of maximum ethnic minority participation in organizational governance and members who qualify as ethnic minority members are particularly encouraged to become candidates.
