Bargaining unit substitutes
Michigan NEA-R (retired) lifetime membership
School nurses are encouraged to be part of the teacher bargaining unit. If they are, they enroll in the Association and pay the same fee as any other educator. If they are not part of the bargaining unit, they may enroll as associate members of MEA and active full-time members of NEA. Membership in the Michigan Association of School Nurses is required.
EIP, co-op, etc., teachers may also enroll as student members, unless they’re members of the local bargaining unit. Appropriate local education association membership is required.
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).
