Am I a Member?

I pay dues, am I a member? Not necessarily. Everyone covered by WEA-Sammamish pays a fee equivalent to dues (because you benefit from all the same protections and have rights to advocacy). You are an official "member" only if you have signed a Enrollment form and pay an additional $2.00 (cert) or $1.50 (classified) dues per month. These forms are available by calling WEA-Sammamish or sending an email message to our membership coordinator, Charlotte Cole at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

What is the benefit of being a member? As a member, your WEA/NEA insurance provides up to $25,000 in attorney fees if you are charged with a crime related to your job. (Remember, you don't have to be guilty to be charged.) You'd lose again if you are sued in civil court (if, for example, a student is injured while under your supervision) because, as a non-member, you would not be eligible for up to $1 million in insurance coverage to pay attorney fees and damages in employment-related lawsuits. You vote in all elections pertaining to WEA leadership and representation of the organization at various conventions. You also have access to the Attorney Refferal program.  Click here for more information.
