We, the Dayton Education Association, will encourage professionalism; advocate the rights of members; and demonstrate a positive commitment to the enhancement of "Public Education."
The Early Enrollment Campaign will kick-off on April 1st for the 2021-2022 Membership Year!
Starting on this date, potential members who have not previously been members of OEA may enroll immediately without the requirement to pay dues back to the beginning of the current membership year. New members choosing to join through this program will immediately be granted membership. These new members will have access to the NEA Member Benefits program as well as the NEA Educators Employment Liability (EEL) Program benefit. New members enrolling via early enrollment will not however, be able to access legal services or hold elected union office until the beginning of the new membership year.
For the first time this year, individuals may enroll on-line for early enrollment!
Members interested in early enrollment can go to www.ohea.org/why_belong and follow the “Join” prompts to enroll. For your convenience, attached to this email is a version of the “Top 10 Reasons to Belong” flyer that includes a QR code which links directly to the Why Belong page on the OEA website. This flyer may be helpful in promoting the early enrollment campaign with locals. Please note that in addition to the on-line enrollment function, OEA will also continue to offer the standard electronic version of the Early Enrollment form upon request to the OEA Membership Department.
