Who we are:

The BCEA represents approximately 10,000 members employed in 40 districts within Burlington County.  Our members include teachers, teacher aides/assistants, transportation workers, custodial & maintenance personnel, secretaries and paraprofessionals.

What we do:

Work in tandem with our local NJEA UniServ office to bring information and training to the local education associations in Burlington County.

Host a yearly celebration for our local association presidents. These hard-working individuals deserve our recognition for their dedication to their local association members.

Send a delegation to the National Education Association’s annual Representative Assembly. This representative body is the primary legislative and policy making body of the NEA.

Provide:

  • a link between NJEA and our local associations through participation in the NJEA Delegate Assembly.
  • a Minority Leadership and Recruitment Workshop to encourage multi-ethnic members to become active in all levels of association work.
  • a Legislative Committee comprised of a Government Relations Committee chairperson and a Congressional Contact Committee chairperson which work together with our local association representatives to keep them informed of legislative issues and concerns.

Offer:

  • a Holiday Social and a Member Appreciation Social each year so all members can gather to celebrate.
  • an overnight workshop for all members in Atlantic City. This workshop provides advocacy training by NJEA staff.
  • Professional Development workshops throughout the year for both certified staff and educational support professionals.
