Declaration of Candidacy for NEA RA State Delegate Election

NEA Representative Assembly 2024

July 3-7, 2024

Missouri’s delegate allocation will be made based on membership as of January 2024. Last year, Missouri was allowed to elect 23 state delegates to the NEA RA. Delegates are elected in two categories:  

  • Category I:  Active members who are teachers, education support professionals, and other active members not serving as supervisors or administrators.
  • Category II:  Active members who are supervisors or administrators.

For more than 20 years, Missouri NEA has demonstrated the strength of its leadership diversity by electing racial and ethnic minority delegates to the NEA RA in proportion to the minority populations in our state. To continue this achievement we must strive to actively identify and recruit racial and ethnic minority members to run for state delegate to the NEA Representative Assembly.  

Aspiring Educators-Missouri delegates are elected in the spring. If you are a member of Aspiring Educators and interested in running for delegate, contact Shannon Weber to declare your candidacy. 

MNEA-Retired delegates will be elected at their Annual Meeting in April. If you are a retired member, contact Dr. Patrick Layden to declare your candidacy. 

The deadline to declare your candidacy for the NEA RA election is Jan. 15. For more information about the NEA RA or to declare your candidacy by mail, contact Roxane Bly ( at (573) 644-9606.
