Do you love politics? Are you interested in influencing the officials who make the decisions that affect your job? The NJEA Government Relations Division has the perfect program for you: the County Legislative Action Team, or LAT. And this year, the program is being expanded so that any member who wants to take part in politics can join.

Because NJEA members asked about expanding the LAT program beyond these limits, the Government Relations Division has created the Associate LAT program. This program allows all NJEA members who want to become involved in campaigns and politics to go to LAT meetings either where they work, where they live, or both. 

Everything about your job and your day—your salary and benefits, the amount of time you work, maybe even what you can eat at lunch (if your district has a peanut-free policy)—is determined by elected officials, or the appointed officials they choose.


Shouldn’t you be involved in politics?
