FEA HCR Program's Minority Affairs Committee (MAC) Meeting & Diversity Training
This meeting/training session has become a highlight of the FEA Annual Membership Meeting and a fantastic kickoff event. Join the FEA Human & Civil Rights Coordinator and a cadre of trainers from NEA as they present an entertaining and enlightening program centered around issues of diversity and how we address/respond to them.
The training will begin at 6:30pm in the Royal Sonesta's Champions III room (FEA delegates and Association members only please, no family or guests)
The American Foreign Service Protective Association (AFSPA) will host a reception for FEA members from 6-8pm in the balcony area near the Royal Sonesta's Champions meeting level. Light hors d'oeuvres and drinks will be served. Family members and guests are invited to attend.
NEA HUMAN AND CIVIL RIGHTS AWARDS
Truly a highlight of any delegate's NEA-RA experience, the NEA Human & Civil Rights Awards Program is a celebration of individuals who have made outstanding contributions/achievements in the field of human and civil rights. NOTE: In a change from past years, NEA will NOT provide bus transportation between hotels and the HCR Awards Program which will take place at the Houston Convention Center (the same site as the NEA-RA. Delegates will have to arrange their own travel to/from the event (taxi, Uber/Lyft, etc.)
NEA GLBT Caucus Dinner
Every year at the NEA-RA, the NEA GLBT Caucus host a special evening that includes dinner, dancing, guest speakers and recognition of the work of members and educators for the civil and human rights of our members and students. Michael Priser has purchased 2 tables (20 tickets) for our State Caucus (FEA). This event will be attended by nearly 1000 educators. This year the Dinner will be on the evening of Saturday, July 6, at the Hilton Americas Houston Hotel. The cost of ticket will be $75/person (same as in past years). The event usually sells out. If you are interested in going, send an email to Michael at email@example.com. Delegates can pay Michael in Houston.
