AEA is the largest democratically organized professional association in Alabama and almost every AEA leadership position is elected by the membership. Your vote elects the education professionals who set the agenda for your association and in many cases for your local schools. The more you get involved and the more you vote, the stronger your professional association will become.
Each year, the AEA Policies and Procedures Commission submits the elections rules along with the current timeline and open positions to the AEA Board for approval. You can find links to all election information and nomination forms below when available.
AEA has seven districts. Each board district has three directors who sit on the AEA Board. The district directors serve a staggered three-year term so each year a director for each district is elected. AEA holds elections every year for all open positions on the AEA Board. Also included in these elections are the NEA state delegate positions for each district. These delegates are elected to represent the state at the NEA Representative Assembly. AEA Division elections for ESP, Postsecondary, and Administrator are held concurrently with the AEA regular elections.
In what district am I? Your AEA district and your UniServ district are not the same. There are only seven AEA districts, while there are 31 UniServ districts. You must use your AEA district when running for any board position or for state NEA delegate. Check the AEA Board of Directors district map to determine in which district you are located.
If you have any questions about these elections, please contact Tina Collins in the AEA Legal Department. Please be aware that the Association of Classroom Teachers (ACT) elections are conducted by the Education Policy and Professional Practice Department of AEA. Contact Kynesha Brown for more information.
*The AEA Delegate Assembly meets annually in December. Approximately 1,000 members – locally elected leaders – come together to debate and adopt resolutions that steer the annual actions of the Association. Talk to your local leaders or your UniServ Director about how to become a delegate to participate in the AEA Delegate Assembly.
