This is a powerful moment that took place this 
past weekend at the NEA ESP conference in Orlando, Fl with our former 2nd VP Mike Rollins, current 2nd VP Kim Scott (NJEA Executive Committee) and Treasurer Christine Canderella. They met this young lady along with her parents at a doughnut shop in Disney Springs. She walked in excited about eating her first doughnut ever because she has a severe allergy towards eggs, nuts, milk and soy. Mike engaged the family and heard this young lady's story and told the sales clerk to give any doughnut she wanted. Mike paid for it and her mom was nearly in tears and the family thanked them immensely and asked for pictures.This is what it's all about. Moments like this will have an impact on a child's life for a lifetime. That's why we do what we do Empowering and uplifting our students.

It's amazing to see some of our members
and leadership team representing well at the NEA Leadership Summit Conference that took place
 this past weekend in Chicago.

My fellow ECEA members,

 For more than 75 years the ECEA has been providing professional development and training to educators, promoting our public schools, and keeping members informed about their union. I believe that the ECEA in 2017-18 will continue carrying out those three core missions better than ever.

 There are many opportunities in this organization for members to become more involved. Whether it’s attending a workshop or volunteering to support our endorsed candidates we would love to see more members at our events.

 We are very excited for members to see the new office and meeting space in Cedar Grove. It is a wonderful space for members to meet and learn and utilize as a resource. However, the greatest resource that we have in the ECEA is our members. Your talents and energy are needed to keep us strong in these challenging times for educators and public education.

In addition to your talent and hard work, your voice is also important. ECEA provides many opportunities to let your voice be heard by our elected leaders in our union and in the statehouse in Trenton.

 Finally, as the president of the ECEA, on behalf of our entire leadership team, please accept my invitation to get to know the ECEA better this year. Checking out this website is a good first step in finding out how you can join us in furthering the goals of public education and public educators in Essex County. Great things are happening and I would love for you to be a part of it.


  In Solidarity,

Anthony Rosamilia


Essex County Education Association
