The union members vote every two years to elect an executive board, which oversees the affairs of the union to meet the needs of the staff. The board is guided by the union’s bylaws, which can be viewed on the website. The executive board is made up of a president, who is responsible for the day to day running of the union. The vice-president supports the president and is a member of the grievance team. Other important positions include membership, secretary, communications, treasurer, and regional representative for Illinois Education Association (IEA).
