If you’re serving young people in our public schools, chances are good that you can!
VEA stands up for public education, Virginia’s students, and for education employees, and we welcome those who work in and for public schools. Our primary categories of membership are:
- Active professional: such as classroom teacher or counselor
- Active education support professional: such as bus driver, paraprofessional, or cafeteria worker
- Student: meaning those enrolled in or preparing for a teacher education program
- Retired educator: at least 45 years of age or eligible for a pension for a public education career.
We offer flexible options and alternatives, including membership options for working part-time in our public schools, in administrative positions, or substitute teaching.
Association membership is “unified.” When you join, you automatically become a member at three levels: your local Association, the VEA, and the National Education Association. Dues vary by category. For details, contact your Local Association or VEA or join online through NEA and pay by credit card.
