Sixty percent (60%) of the money allocated to the Ballot Measure/Legislative Crises and Media
Where necessary to avoid legal problems under state law, the Association and a state affiliate may, at the request of the state affiliate, enter into a written agreement providing that the money collected from members of that state affiliate shall not be used to deal with ballot measures, but shall be used only to deal with legislative crises and/or to fund national and state media campaigns. The Executive Committee shall develop guidelines to implement this Bylaw. These guidelines shall be submitted to the Board of Directors, and shall become effective when approved by the Board of Directors.
The NEA president shall make a report regarding the operation of the Ballot Measure/Legislative Crises and Media Campaign Fund, which shall include a financial statement, to each Representative Assembly.
This amendment would establish an additional increase of ten dollars ($10.00) for Active members for the 2011-2012 through 2015-2016 membership years. The resulting combined dues payment for Active members allocated to the Crisis Fund for each of the five (5) membership years would be twenty dollars ($20.00). The amount of the dues payment for Active members allocated to the Crisis Fund will return to ten dollars ($10.00) in the 2016-2017 membership year.
