Legislative Issues to be Discussed at Fall Member Meetings

By July 21, 2016 No Comments

MREA will host 12 meetings this fall to gather input on the issues that matter most to our Greater Minnesota members. Teachers, board members, and administrators are encouraged to attend.

Information from the 2016 Fall Member Meetings will be used to build MREA’s member platform for the 2017 legislative session. Participants also will discuss successes and challenges in member districts.

These input sessions will be held in August and September at schools across the state, from Albert Lea to Thief River Falls.
