Release time, travel, meals, lodging is paid for by the council. Clock hours are optional for participants in the Sparks Retreat/Workshop (12 clock hours or 1 Seattle Pacific University Credit hour).


Public Education Advocates (PEA) - Our purpose is to foster understanding and appreciation of public education in our region. We seek to honor the efforts made by all people involved with education. Think about a project you would like to do with your students, parents and community that will support and enhance public education. Each local has funds available to support you with parent and community involvement. This is an effort to highlight and increase public awareness of local associations and the support they give to public education. 


MEMBER BENEFITS


Attorney Referral - If you need a lawyer, the NEA provides WEA/NEA members with the services of an attorney at a discounted hourly rate. The Attorney Referral Program (ARP) is a service provided to NEA members (active, life, educational support or retired, their spouses and dependent children) who need services of an attorney on personal legal matters, i.e., not employment-related.


Participating ARP attorneys provide each member with two free 30-minute consultation sessions during each year of the program (Sept. 1 through Aug. 31). These two free consultations are taken separately and deal with two different questions. This benefit allows you to discuss your problem with an attorney to determine whether you need additional legal services. Do not expect the attorney to draft or review documents during a consultation. It is important to discuss any fee arrangements at your initial meeting.


NEA Member Benefits - The 3 million members of the National Education Association are linked by a common thread—dedication to students, to families, and to community. At NEA Member Benefits, we take pride in serving you! We are dedicated to making the personal and professional lives of educators better through “best in class” programs and services.


Auto and Home Insurance - NEA Member Benefits has partnered with California Casualty to work with your budget and needs to provide exclusive insurance for WEA Members. For more information, please see: http://www.neamb.com/california-casualty.htm


Money Saving Discounts - When you put the size and strength of the 82,000 member WEA to work for you, the result is some of the best benefits, service and rates in the state! For more information please see their website.
