WHY MEMBERSHIP MATTERS
Educators give it all for our kids. MEA gives it all for educators.
Educators work hard to shape Maine's youth, they deserve an organization that works just as hard for them—through support in your day to day work, pay and benefit negotiations, advocacy at the State House, securing discounts that help save you money, and so much more. MEA has your back - it works to advance public education by advocating for the profession and supporting Maine's educators so they can focus on what they do best.

"My Association represents me as a professional and helps all educators bargain for better wages and working conditions. Our improved contract is a direct result of our negotiating efforts."
"Whether you're a first-year educator or in your 30th year, being an MEA member provides you the support you need to succeed. There are so many different challenges in your career, and along the way, each step, MEA is always here to help."
MEA VICE PRESIDENT
"Membership means access to a wide network of mentors, activists, and organizers—being a member continues to help me in my career and provides me with opportunities to advance the profession that I wouldn't have otherwise received."
"The members of our Association are the driving force. We see the barriers faced by our students and colleagues, and the Association helps us work together to create a direction that will make our state's schools better for all."
