local success is the presence of dynamic
leadership- in other words, a local president who

the local.

Lets Begin by talking about the Structures
  • What are the local, state and national structures
    that support our association?

23
The Symbol of the United Education Profession
(UEP)
  • This symbol was adopted by the NEA Executive
    Committee in 1966. It combines the legacy of the
    past (the symbol pi for paideia, the ancient
    Greek word for education) with new direction for
    the future (the arrow). The spherical triangle
    represents the mutually supportive programs of
    local, state and national education associations
    to advance education. In one sentence, the
    design symbolizes the forward thrust of education
    through a united profession.

25
The MNEA Governance Structure
  • Please refer to your handout

26
Responsibilities
  • The MNEA Representative Assembly the highest
    decision-making body of MNEA. Each local is
    entitled to at least one delegate to the RA.
  • The MNEA Board Makes decisions between RAs
  • The MNEA Officers 2 full-time release
  • The MNEA Staff 53 2 NEA-funded staff

27
Your Governance District
  • How do you communicate
  • With other locals?
  • With your Board Members?
  • With the state association?

28
MNEA Committees
  • Appointed by the MNEA President
  • Responsible to the MNEA Board and RA
  • Do you have members on any of the committees?
  • Volunteer forms available in the spring at the
    RA, through Leaders Update, on the Web site

29
Revising Your Bylaws
  • A Legal MUST DO

30
According to the NEA Bylaws
  • each state association is required to review
    local affiliate compliance with minimum standards
    of affiliation at least every five years.

31
Local, State and National Bylaws
  • Bylaws are the operating standards for NEA and
    MNEA.
  • There are criteria that must be met, such as open
    nominations and secret ballot voting.
  • If a local needs to recall an officer or take
    other serious action, the local must follow its
    bylaws.
  • If officers are not elected in compliance with
    the local bylaws, the liability policy will not
    cover the officers.

32
Local Bylaw Compliance
  • Locals whose bylaws are out of compliance must
    revise them before the Spring RA, or they run the
    risk of their delegates not being seated at the
    RA.

33
Local Bylaw Compliance
  • If necessary, I will send alert letters to
    UniServ Directors, presidents and other contacts,
    and I have called our leaders at home, school and
    on their cell phones to help some locals come
    into compliance.

34
Bylaw Ratification
  • It is a serious matter that the members in the
    local have an opportunity to vote to accept their
    updated bylaws. Otherwise, the bylaws have not
    been legally ratified.

35
Make sure that Bylaws are up-to-date!
  • Please consider the seriousness of not having
    your Bylaws up-to-date.
  • MNEA stamps the date received on all bylaws
    submitted to us. We must go by the date on the
    bylaws that we have.
  • Please make sure MNEA has your latest revisions.

36
Effective Meetings
  • What do you want to accomplish in a meeting?

37
Effective Meetings What do you want to
accomplish?
  • Complete your agenda
  • Want people to feel welcomed and come back!
  • Assign responsibility for follow-up
  • Need to determine what will be communicated to
    members
  • Want more members involved and enthused
  • Want to respect members time and other
    obligations
  • Need to provide time for feedback from members
  • As a leader, you want support!

38
so how do you do that?
  • Plan ahead
  • Input from others
  • Agenda to participants ahead of time
  • Start and end on time
  • Ground rules (handout)
  • Parliamentary procedure consistently followed
  • Make sure that there are minutes of the meeting
  • Clear delegation of responsibilities

39
Effective meetings
  • The agenda (clearly indicates time place)
  • The meeting time and day (Always the same?
    Change every month?)
  • The attendees must feel safe (warm-ups)
  • The meeting location (Easily accessible,
    confidential location, room for everyone)
  • The meeting space (comfortable)
  • The meeting procedure (everyone welcome,
    consistent, time for input)
  • In between meetings
  • Meeting follow-up
