An Epic OEA RA: Thank You, PAT Delegates!

The OEA RA was held virtually this year due to the pandemic. Thank you to all the delegates who volunteered numerous hours attending the many events and meetings that happened over several weeks, and with the RA finishing after midnight on Saturday night. 

The delegates voted on numerous business items, bylaws changes, legislative objectives, and resolutions, all of which govern the work of our state-wide union. Highlights of the business that occurred are forthcoming. 

One important note is we elected new OEA officers: President, Reed Scott-Schwalbach; Vice President, Enrique Farrera; and ESP Director, Samantha Piers-VanderPloeg. The voting for a new NEA Director follows the NEA rules and ballots are being mailed to delegates. Our own Adolfo Garza Cano is one of the candidates for this position. We will find out the results for this race later in May. Congratulations to our new OEA officers!
