Why Join the Prince William Education Association?
Through PWEA, you can connect with other educators from across the state and nation who are dealing with the same issues that face you.
PWEA is your best source of accurate, timely information. PWEA keeps on top of current laws, regulations and policies affecting education. Information is as always as close as a phone call away for any member.
- Instructional and Professional Development
The Instructional and Professional Development (IPD) committee works together to provide opportunities to meet the personal and professional goals of members. IPD helps promote and support local, state, and national opportunities related to instruction and professional development. PWEA also offers workshops, grants and scholarships to members, their dependents and a PWCPS student attending college to become a teacher.
All PWEA members receive regular national, state and local publications with the latest educational developments. As a member, you receive discounts on all of the hundreds of resources available through the NEA Professional Library Catalogue, the largest resource house in the world for educators.
- Public Relations
PWEA shares with the public and with key decision-makers pertinent information about education from the viewpoints of teachers and school employees. It builds the image of public school educators through advertising and public relations activities.
- Legal Assistance
PWEA's legal advice extends far beyond liability insurance and attorneys. Any time you have a question about your employment rights or benefits, ask your UniServ directors. If you need legal assistance, PWEA attorneys are the best in the state in employment-related and school law. And these services are all free to PWEA members.
- Liability Insurance
If you are sued, PWEA/VEA/NEA liability insurance provides you with an attorney and $1 million in coverage.
Whether it's the State Board of Education, a legislative committee, or an education coalition, whenever decisions about educators and students are being made, PWEA is there representing your views.
