The 2019 statewide meeting was a necessary and important one for MCEA. The business of the union was handled in a productive and efficient manner. The most pressing issue for the union right now is the need to grow the membership. While this is a challenge for any public-sector union, the solution isn’t always that easy. The answer to growing MCEA is organizing but members aren’t trained in that area. Fortunately, the union’s affiliation with AFT and AFT-Maryland provided the resources to teach member-to-member engagement strategies. Destiny Turnboe of AFT and Roosevelt Thomas of AFT-Maryland
