‘Just 1’ Drive Underway

Campaign Could Add 300 Members to Association

Because there is power in numbers, and because membership development is a year-round effort, NSEA has kicked off a campaign with a goal of signing nearly 300 new members by Feb. 28.

The ‘Just One’ campaign asks each of NSEA’s nearly 300 local associations to  work to sign up at least one new member before the campaign ends on Thursday, Feb. 28.

“Membership is key,” said NSEA President Jenni Benson, reiterating NSEA’s 2018-19 theme. “That membership growth would translate into more collective support for students and teachers when dealing with education quality at the local level, more backing at the negotiations table, more input and support for education at the Legislature.”

As incentive, each current member who signs a new member to Association membership will be entered to win a smart watch. Every local association that gains more than one new member will earn $50 to be used at the local level for a membership event of that local’s choosing.

Here is the attraction for non-members: those who sign up in January or February will pay pro-rated, half-price dues.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for non-members to join and to get a better understanding and knowledge of what the Association does for teachers and students,” said Benson.
