Ways to Increase Membership

Postby AndrewLewis » July 3rd, 2013, 12:24 pm

Membership growth does not just happen. Members themselves must work to increase the number in their organization.

The membership year is September 1 through August 31. Plan a substantial year long membership drive that continues your campaign through the second semester. Your total state membership as of March 15 determines the number of student delegates your state is entitled to elect to represent you at the annual NEA Representative Assembly.

As you speak to fellow students about joining the NEA Student Program, here are a few Do's and Don'ts and selling points to keep in mind.

The NEA Student Program is made up of thousands of college students who are preparing to become teachers.

If you are observing or tutoring in a class, NEA liability insurance protects you against legal charges. You are covered by this $1,000,000 liability insurance policy every time you work with students in any capacity as part of your preparation program.

Your college or university chapter, made up of many friendly students, sponsors social activities throughout the year.
