HEA Elections

HEA is an affiliate of AEA, which is the largest democratically organized professional association in Alabama and almost every HEA and AEA leadership position is elected by the membership. Your vote elects the education professionals who set the agenda for our association and in many cases for our local schools. The more you get involved and the more you vote, the stronger your professional association will become.

About AEA Board Elections:

Each year, the AEA Policies and Procedures Commission submits the election rules along with the current timeline and open positions to the AEA Board for approval. You can find links to all election information and nomination forms on the AEA website when available.

AEA has seven districts. Each board district has three directors who sit on the AEA Board. The district directors serve a staggered three-year term, so each year, a director for each district is elected. AEA holds elections every year for all open positions on the AEA Board. Also included in these elections are the NEA state delegate positions for each district. These delegates are elected to represent the state at the NEA Representative Assembly. AEA Division elections for ESP, Postsecondary, and Administrator are held concurrently with the AEA regular elections.
