Why Join

the pwea


Through PWEA, you can connect with other educators from across the state and nation who are dealing with the same issues that face you.


PWEA is your best source of accurate, timely information. PWEA keeps on top of current laws, regulations and policies affecting education. Information is as always as close as a phone call away for any member.

Instructional & Professional Development

The Instructional and Professional Development (IPD) committee works together to provide opportunities to meet the personal and professional goals of members. IPD helps promote and support local, state, and national opportunities related to instruction and professional development. PWEA also offers workshops, grants and scholarships to members, their dependents and a PWCPS student attending college to become a teacher.

There are several opportunities that occur annually for Professional Development such as:

  • VEA/NEA Conventions
  • VEA/NEA Instructional Conferences
  • VEA/NEA Leadership Training


NEA Member Benefits All PWEA members receive regular national, state and local publications with the latest educational developments.

  • VEA Journal
  • VEA News
  • NEA Today
  • PWEA’s The Advocate

Public Relations

PWEA shares with the public and with key decision-makers pertinent information about education from the viewpoints of teachers and school employees. It builds the image of public school educators through advertising and public relations activities.

Legal Assistance

PWEA’s legal advice extends far beyond liability insurance and attorneys. Any time you have a question about your employment rights or benefits, ask your UniServ directors. If you need legal assistance, PWEA attorneys are the best in the state in employment-related and school law. And these services are all free to PWEA members.

Liability Insurance

Whether it’s the State Board of Education, a legislative committee, or an education coalition, whenever decisions about educators and students are being made, PWEA is there representing your views.
