BCEA Legislative Action Team Meeting
March 5 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm EST
The BCEA Legislative Action Team is a network of NJEA members who communicate legislative and political information to elected officials and to other NJEA members. They form a vital link between our Association and our government. The Bergen County LAT is comprised of at least one representative from each local in that county. EVERY Local should send one representative and additional “associate” LAT’s are welcome to attend. Please RSVP to Wendy. You can park in the BCEA lot, along the street near the park or in the parking lot across the street BEHIND the stores.
What is my role as a member of my county LAT?
Inform members of your local about: Education issues pending before the State Legislature and the U.S. Congress, NJEA’s positions on educational issues, How your local legislators and congressmen voted or plan to vote on important issues, Candidates recommended by NJEA PAC, Encourage members of your local to write, call, phone, fax and e-mail elected officials on important educational issues, Encourage members of your local to support NJEA PAC-endorsed candidates, Encourage members to voluntarily contribute to NJEA PAC, and Help elected officials understand the impact of their decisions on the public schools in their district.
Reminder: NJEA Members should ALWAYS carry their NJEA Membership Card when attending NJEA/BCEA events.
