Locals and UniServ

The UniServ Program

The UniServ program (UniServ is a shortened version of Unified Service) is funded jointly by NEA-Alaska and the National Education Association (NEA). Each year NEA sends state affiliates substantial financial support to assist in employing field staff, known as UniServ Directors, to work directly with local associations. The program exists to expand and secure the rights and interests of members. This includes providing rights and bargaining assistance as well as offering individual and organizational development programs for members and locals.

Organizational development programs available through UniServ Directors help locals develop high-performing boards of directors, building representative systems and committees (such as rights, bargaining, political action and communications). Teaching and learning programs assist members with professional development and growth, including National Board Certification. Other training modules provided include Conflict Resolution, Effective Communications, Systems Thinking, Relational Organizing and Living Wage.

For more information, or to schedule training, contact your local president, UniServ Director, or the UniServ Program Director, Mark Jones.
