Additional Membership Categories
Michigan NEA-R (retired) lifetime membership
Any person interested in advancing the cause of education who is not eligible for categories of membership as provided in the Association’s Constitution and Bylaws may join the Association by paying an MEA fee of $30 (MEA membership only, not NEA).
Teacher Re-Entry/Substitute Membership
Teacher Re-Entry/Substitute membership is open to any person who is working towards teacher re-certification and is otherwise ineligible for MEA Active Membership. Upon eligibility for MEA Active Membership, the Teacher Re-Entry/Substitute membership will cease.
The dues rate for Teacher Re-Entry/Substitute membership is $100 per membership year. If during the membership year (September-June) one becomes eligible for and becomes an Active member a pro-rata portion of Teacher Re-Entry/Substitute membership dues will be credited towards MEA Active membership dues.
Note: Teacher Re-entry/Substitute membership does not provide legal representation for legal disputes that may occur nor other benefits that are reserved for Active members. Nor does it provide liability insurance, unless one is employed as a Substitute by a local board of education and applies for and is approved for NEA Substitute Membership.
