Summer Conference

Join us for the 2019 OEA Summer  Conference!

In 2019, OEA members took action to demand improvements for education in Oregon like never before. From our buildings to our school boards to the state capitol, we have made it clear that we are ready to stand up and fight for what we know is right. Join us this summer as we build on this momentum and lay plans for the 2019-2020 school year. At Summer Conference, everyone is a teacher, everyone is a learner, and we all contain within us the seed to make change. We’ll see you at OEA’s 2019 Summer Conference: Unite! Moving Forward Together.
