TALB Representative Elections

It is now time for school sites to elect their TALB Association Representative. The “Site Rep” is the most important position in TALB. These incredible volunteers make TALB work. They attend monthly TALB Representative Council meetings to represent the interests of TALB members at their school site. They vote to make policy and chart the direction for TALB. They are the direct conduit for important information and updates.
Get involved, make a difference, serve your colleagues…run to be a TALB Site Association Representative.

Update your Beneficiaries
The cycle of life. Every year we have a few members pass. Your TALB/CTA/NEA membership provides a survivor’s benefit up to $6,000.00. Sadly, every now and again, we have a member pass who did not update their beneficiaries. We can only issue the benefit to the individual(s) listed on your survivor’s benefit form. Life comes at you fast. Relationships change. If you have any questions about your survivor’s benefit please call the office at 562-426-6433.
