Active members will elect state delegates in an online election scheduled for March 1-31, 2023.Retired and Aspiring Educator members will choose their delegates to the NEA RA in separate elections.

photo, a hard copy is acceptable if it is submitted with a hard copy of the nomination form. If you choose to email an electronic copy of the form or
submit your nomination via the KEA website, your photo should be submitted in “jpeg” format.
