    Join MNEA-Retired for Capitol Action Days 

    MNEA-Retired will host two Capitol Action Days (CADs) at the capitol in Jefferson City on April 13 and May 4. Please make plans to attend one (or both) of these sessions so that you can learn about legislative issues that will impact public education and our retirement system.

Each day begins at 10:00 a.m. in House Hearing Room 4 with a briefing from MNEA Legislative Director Otto Fajen.

    You are welcome to attend your Governance District’s Capitol Action Day with active members from your area. Visit www.mnea.org/Missouri/CapitolActionDays.aspx for more details and RSVP contacts (We want to have enough materials for all participants!)
