NEA Delegate Jacket Order

In 2009, NEOEA will once again provide a gift for northeastern Ohio delegates to the NEA Representative Assembly: a 5.2-oz. microfleece jacket by Tri-Mountain in navy blue with a front zipper. This item should be just the thing for cool evenings and air-conditioned environments at the annual meeting!

Delegates will need to order their jackets by size: we will not inventory additional jackets. Provide the requested information (see form below) by Wednesday, May 27, and we will bring your jacket to the delegate caucus in Columbus on Saturday, June 6. Or provide the information by Friday, June 12, and we’ll have it at the Ohio caucus in San Diego on Tuesday, July 2.

Non-delegates and guests can purchase jackets at cost. If purchasing, payment of $26 must be enclosed with the order form. Please use one order form per jacket.

The form has been posted at; you can download it, fill it out on your computer, and attach it to an email to Executive Assistant Linda Grunden at; you can fill it out by hand and fax it to us at 216/518-0202; or you can mail it to us at NEOEA Jacket, 5422 E. 96th St., Suite 200, Garfield Hts., OH 44125.

NEOEA Block for Friendship Night

NEA has announced plans for this year's Friendship Night: "NEA Night at the Ballpark," Friday, July 3, at a baseball game between the San Diego Padres and the Los Angeles Dodgers. NEA President Dennis Van Roekel will throw out the first pitch.

The deal NEA has arranged provides seats for $7.50, and that includes $5 on "stadium cash" for concessions!

NEOEA is purchasing 40 tickets. We don't have them yet, but you can put yourself on the list by paying $7.50 per ticket at the NEOEA table at the OEA RA on May 8-9. There's no form to fill out: we'll have a signup sheet at the table.
