Republican Member Meeting:  Over the last two years, Education Minnesota has made efforts to involve Education Minnesota Republican members in legislative and political activities on behalf of public education. It’s more important than ever for our Republican members to build relationships with their legislators.

Education Minnesota will hold a meeting of interested Republican members on Saturday, Feb. 5, from noon to 3 p.m. at the Education Minnesota headquarters in St. Paul. Education Minnesota will provide lunch and pay mileage for all members.  We’ll both give you information about engaging in the political process and take the time to hear what you have to say.  If you are interested, email us at ahem@anoka.k12.mn.us and we’ll get you set up.

Scholarships for Union Members and Their Families: The Minnesota AFL-CIO is proud to have scholarships available for union members and their dependents.  Education Minnesota is affiliated with the AFL-CIO, so our members are eligible. Five $1000 Minnesota AFL-CIO scholarship are available  to graduating high school seniors this year. The scholarship application deadline is April 30, 2011.   For more information and application forms, visit http://tinyurl.com/5v5spxz.
