To make a real difference for schools and children, our profession, and our retired members, we must become involved in the political process. That is why NEA-Alaska and local affiliates work to elect pro-education candidates to local school boards and assemblies, the Alaska Legislature, the Governor’s mansion, the U.S. House and Senate, and the White House.

Every two years NEA-Alaska sends out education questionnaires to political candidates. The NEA-Alaska PACE committee, made up of elected members, conducts face-to-face interviews with the candidates. Based on the their responses, NEA-Alaska may make recommendations to the membership for legislative districts in Alaska.

Please contact our representatives on the PACE Committee if you have questions or concerns.
