An invitation for you: BE IN OUR PICTURE!

Have you ever had a secret desire to see your face on the cover of a magazine? Or how about having thousands of people see your picture every day?

If you have—we’ve got an opportunity to make you dreams come true!

On Saturday, May 17, 2014, we are shooting the picture that will be on the cover of the 2014-15 MEA calendar. This year’s theme, “We believe in  public education,” will be brought to life with a group shot of as many MEA members and their children who want to be a part of MEA history. We want to showcase you and your commitment to public education and students.

We need bright, shiny faces of members wearing bright colors—please no T-shirts with slogans or pictures—and dressed in your regular work clothes or uniforms. Diversity is our goal.  We want a representation of all of our MEA members—from gender to race to age to job classifications.

We also want to include students, so please bring your children with you to the photo shoot.

There will be no reimbursement for mileage or food, but we hope you still will make the effort to show your pride in being a school employee. This picture is planned to taken outside. If it should happen to be raining, we will have an indoor location nearby for the picture.

We’ll be gathering at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 17 at MacDonald Middle School, 1601 Burcham Drive (east of Hagadorn Road), East Lansing, 48823.

Let us know if you’ll be a part of this momentous occasion by contacting MEA Editor Rosemary Carey at 800-292-1934, ext. 6215 or at  

Put the date on your calendar. We hope to see you there!
