ATLANTA (AP) - Nearly 9,000 educators are expected to convene in Atlanta for an annual conference.
The National Education Association is set to hold its annual representative assembly in Atlanta June 26 through July 6. The assembly is the top decision-making body for the 3-million member organization and establishes the group's policies for the upcoming year.
Officials say delegates typically craft strategic plans, budget policies, a legislative program and more.
The theme for this year's annual meeting is "NEA: We Educate America." NEA spokeswoman Staci Maiers says this is the first time since 1997 that the group will hold a convention in Atlanta.
