How To Become A School-Based Officer In Your Union

Are you ready to become a leader in your union? 

Educators for Excellence – New York (E4E-NY) invites you to step up and become a school-based officer. This is your chance to have your voice heard and drive meaningful change in the decisions that impact your profession.

School-based officers play a crucial role in representing educators like you in monthly decision-making meetings that impact policies, negotiations, and, ultimately, the working conditions of teachers. By becoming a school-based officer, you have the opportunity to advocate for the issues that matter most to you and your colleagues.

If you’re passionate about improving education and amplifying teacher voices, running for a school-based officer position is the next step. But where do you start? E4E-NY has your back. We’ve curated a set of downloadable resources to equip you with all the tools you need.


But remember, time is of the essence. Most nomination forms must be received by April 12th, 2024. The voting period for elections will occur between May 15th and June 18th, 2024.

Download our resources, step up, and make your voice heard to create a union that represents the needs and aspirations of educators across New York. Your dedication, ideas, and commitment to excellence can drive positive change for the teaching profession and the education system as a whole.
