Resolutions now being accepted for the 2017 AEA Delegate Assembly
The AEA Resolutions Commission wishes to solicit input for resolutions to be considered by the AEA Delegate Assembly. You may make your recommendations using the form below. Please be as specific as possible by following the sample resolution.
Recommendations received by the deadline, which is October 3, 2017, at 4:45 p.m., will be sent to the proper commission – Legislative, EPPP, or Public Relations. Resolutions to be considered by the Delegate Assembly will be printed in the Alabama School Journal. Recommendations received after October 3, 2017, at 4:45 p.m., will become new business items to be submitted to the Delegate Assembly and will not be printed in the Alabama School Journal.
The following are some questions for thought for the development of your resolutions.
1. What do you and/or your students need for an improved program of instruction?
2. What is needed for public education to be adequately funded and/or fully funded?
3. What do you need to be economically secure in your profession salary, fringe benefits, retirement)?
4. What do you need in order to have the best working conditions?
5. What is needed to improve employment practices and procedures?
