NCEA Reps to OEA Rep Assembly

NCEA members who will represent NCEA at the Fall and Spring ECOEA and OEA Rep Assemblies were determined last week. The initial call for self-nomination by Vice-President Nick Plazak did not garner enough names to fill our six slots in an election, so those members who did self-nominate were elected by acclamation. The remaining slots were filled by appointment when a second call for volunteers was made by President Skip Baran. Our six reps are Dan Campanaro-HHS, Eileen Nielsen-NCMS, Jim York-NCMS,  Gary Bodenschatz-HHS, President Skip Baran-HHS, and Val Heban-NCMS. Any NCMS member may attend the Rep Assemblies at district, state, or national  level as an observer. Only Reps have voting privileges. Consider attending a Rep Assembly to see democracy in action!
