The Green Bay Education Association (GBEA) is a professional organization of educators and paraprofessionals working in the Green Bay Area Public School District. The GBEA represents the public policy, labor and professional interests of its members. The GBEA is a strong advocate for the over 20,000 children in the Green Bay Area Public Schools. The GBEA is also an affiliate of the Wisconsin Education Association Council (WEAC), which represents Wisconsin educators. Through WEAC, our members are also affiliated with the National Education Association (NEA) which has approximately 3 million members. Both organizations provide members with legislative support, leadership opportunities, and legal resources.
The GBEA Structure
The GBEA follows a constitution and set of bylaws. An executive board, meeting twice a month, is our governing body. It is made up of the president, vice-president, secretary and treasurer and eight members elected at large. Officers serve three year terms. Our legislative and policy-making body is a representative assembly (RA). The RA meets monthly. Each building elects one representative for every 10 members.
The Green Bay Education Association works collaboratively with its members, the district and community to promote high quality public education for all students and advocate for the profession.
The vision of the Green Bay Education Association is quality public education for all students.
