VEA Delegate Assembly to Convene in Roanoke

Hundreds of VEA members will travel to Roanoke April 7-9 to chart the course for the Association in the year ahead.

The first general and business session of the 123rd VEA Delegate Assembly opens on Thursday evening, April 7. Business will conclude on Saturday, April 9.

During their time in Roanoke, delegates will approve the Association's budget, resolutions, and new business items, among other tasks. They will also vote on three amendments to the Association's bylaws. A number of other informational sessions will take place. On Thursday, April 7, NEA Executive Committee member (and former VEA President) Princess Moss will deliver a keynote address. A panel discussion will then be held that will include Moss and Virginia NEA Directors Lee Dorman, Sarah Patton, and Tommie McCune. Speeches will also be given by Mary Hatwood Futrell, the former VEA and NEA President, and David Johnson, retired VEA Executive Director. And, of course, VEA President Dr. Kitty Boitnott will deliver her president's report.

The proposed amendments to VEA bylaws are linked below. Each is accompanied by a statement of effect to guide delegates in considering the proposed change. In looking at the change in wording, remember that strikethrough indicates language to be deleted and underline indicates language to be inserted. All have been reviewed and forwarded to the Delegate Assembly by the VEA Board of Directors. Bylaw amendments must be approved by a majority vote.
