On Friday, November 5, 2021 during the 2021 NJEA Convention our President Anthony Rosamilia addressed the NJ State BOE and Acting Commissioner about the current issues that our educators and students are facing.
Many of our Essex County members were part of the NJEA 200K Conversations that was a idea last year during the summer of 2020. The Initiative and purpose is to reach out to members across the state to start a dialogue on "How is it going". During this past Summer 2021 every member received a phone call during the 200k Conversation.
After meeting virtually for the past year, the members along with NJEA VP Steve Beatty, NJEA staff Mayrose Wegmann and Thomas Hardy were able to have a meetup at the 2021 NJEA Convention to pose for a picture.
