AUTHORIZATION

I hereby authorize my monthly dues to be collected and paid to the Westminster Education Association, per my selection above.

I have reviewed this form in its entirety and hereby authorize the continuing payment or dues deduction of unified dues (local affiliate, CEA, NEA as applicable) unless I revoke this authorization in writing to WEA per bylaws Section V – Membership, which authorizes that I provide written notification to the WEA to cancel this authorization between June 1st and June 15th (see #1 on back of form).


IMPORTANT NOTES:

1. I understand my membership is voluntary. I fully understand that the annual association dues, fees, and assessments required for membership in the three associations are subject to periodic change by the governing bodies of the associations and authorize on a continuing basis the payment of the modified dues unless I revoke my membership in writing with the appropriate local association or I am no longer working with the school district.
2. I understand that I must maintain active and continuous membership to continue to receive membership benefits, legal services, and any other NEA or CEA products.
3. By providing my cell phone number, I understand and agree that CEA / NEA / NEAMB may use automated calling, prerecorded calls, and/or text me on a periodic basis. The three affiliates will never charge for text message alerts. Carrier message/data rates may apply. I understand that I can revoke my consent at any time.
4. The CEA Active full-time membership dues for teachers, building principals, and college faculty includes $41 Every Member Option (EMO) for political activities and $15 Public Relations Assessment for CEA’s advertising campaign. The CEA Active full-time membership dues for Education Support Professionals includes $20.50 EMO and $7.50 PR Assessment. EMO and the PR Assessment are pro-rated for part-time members.
The CEA will refund the EMO by check if the member notifies CEA in writing before December 15 by U.S. mail or email at the CEA website, coloradoea.org. CEA notifies all Active members who join after Dec 15 about EMO. Retired, Student, and Reserve members do not pay EMO or the PR Assessment, though they may make contributions to either or both. There is EMO refund information at coloradoea.org. Providing U.S. Citizen information is voluntary, it is collected in order to refund Every Member Option contributions to non-U.S. citizen members in accordance with Colorado law. Ethnicity information is optional.
5. If you work half-time or less, you will pay half dues. This is determined by your employment contract and by the threshold of 1387.50 hours for Educational Support Professionals. If an Active member joins after September 1, the local association must prorate the dues by the number of months remaining in the membership year. Retired and Student memberships are not prorated.
6. Dues payments are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes, but (a portion) may be deductible as a miscellaneous itemized deduction.
7. All information is confidential. WEA / CEA does not sell or give away member lists. Membership is open only to public education employees and students in pre-teaching programs at any public or private college/university.
