Delegate Assembly

The NJEA Delegate Assembly (DA) formulates Association policies. The DA includes 127 representatives proportionately elected from the counties for two-year terms. Each county is represented by its affiliated county association president plus one delegate for each 1 percent of the state total of active members of the Association. In addition, one delegate each represents retired, student, and administrative members who do not otherwise have the representation through normal channels.

For the safety of all NJEA members, we have instituted COVID safety protocols for all NJEA-sponsored events.

All attendees at NJEA events are required to show proof that they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or have had a negative result on a PCR test within 72 hours prior to the beginning of the meeting. Rapid tests are not permissible.

Acceptable proof of vaccination includes your fully completed vaccine card, a photo of your card, or online verification on Docket, an app that verifies vaccination status for those who were vaccinated in New Jersey.

Acceptable proof of testing includes a printed or online test result with your name that shows a negative result a PCR test administered no earlier than Wednesday, January 4, 2023.
