About Us

The Green Bay Education Association (GBEA) is a professional organization of educators working in the Green Bay Area Public School District. The GBEA represents the public policy, labor and professional interests of its members. The GBEA is a strong advocate for the over 20,000 children in the Green Bay public schools. The GBEA is also an affiliate of the Wisconsin Education Association Council (WEAC), based in Madison, Wisconsin, which represents Wisconsin educators. Through WEAC, our members are also affiliated with the National Education Association (NEA) located in Washington D.C., which has more than 2.3 million members. Both organizations provide members with legislative support, leadership opportunities, and legal resources.

The GBEA Structure

The GBEA follows a constitution and set of bylaws. An executive board, meeting twice a month, is our governing body. It is made up of the president, vice-president, secretary and treasurer and six members elected at large. Officers serve two year terms. Our legislative and policy making body is a representative assembly (RA). The RA meets monthly. Each building elects one representative for every 10 members.

Mission Statement

The Green Bay Education Association, a union of professional educators, provides a voice for its members through collective bargaining, representation of its members, political action, organizational activities and public relations. The GBEA promotes quality education in Green Bay by working to create a safe, positive educational environment in the public schools and the community.
