This year the Illinois Education Association Representative Assembly will be held on Thursday, April 19– Sat, April 21, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Rosemont. The IEA RA is conducted annually and is where major issues, actions, belief statements, legislative platform and other important issues impacting the work of educators are discussed and voted upon. It truly is a powerful experience to see hundreds of your colleagues from across the state debating all at once. An outstanding example of democracy in action! Visit the IEA website for more information about what the RA will be doing this year.
