The ECOEA Fall Rep Assembly was held on November 17, 2012… here are some photos of some of the activities  from the event, including the serveral individual and local association awards that were presented


 Twelve ECOEA Local Associations met the criteria in the 2011-12 school year to be selected as ECOEA 5 Star Locals…Pictured here are delegates from those locals receiving their award certificates… They are (front row) S.C.E.P.T.A (Arnette Collins), Newcomerstown TA (Janel Travis), Wooster EA (Anne Bowles), Perry Classroom TA Kelli Green), Massillon EA (Carol Meyers), (back row) Rittman EA (Ed Sims), North Canton EA (Dan Campanaro), CPEA (Geneva Parker), Fairless EA (Jennifer Adams), Lake Local EA (Allison Grimm), and Malvern EA (Mandy Bankert)… Not pictured, Alliance EA…

  ECOEA offers locals Public Relations Grant funds up to $500, for submissions of projects that their local association sponsors to support and recognize their members and their activities in their local communities… this year eight ECOEA locals received funds ranging from $250 to $500 each… Among the locals represented at the Rep Assembly are members pictured above from Newcomerstown TA, Wooster EA, Perry CTA, North Canton EA, Fairless EA and Malvern EA…  Click on the PR Grant tab on the top of the page to find out more about this program that your local may be interested in applying for…


 
 Each year ECOEA recognizes the TEN local associations who had the highest member participation in the Fund for Children and Public Education… Since OEA dues money cannot be used in support of candidates running for political office that support public education, funds to support those who are screened and become recommended candidates, can only be supported by separate donations from OEA members… The TOP TEN locals for the 2011-12 school year were… (lowest to highest) Columbiana DD Empl. Assn, East Liverpool EA, Perry CTA, Louisville EA, Plain Local TA, Wooster EA, Massillon EA, Triway EA, Alliance EA, Newcomerstown EA… Pictured here are members from Perry, Wooster, Massillon and Newcomerstown accepting their award certificates…
