Group Description

NEA caucuses are internal member-only groups. Caucuses exist and operate independently of NEA and have no authority to speak for, or act on behalf of, NEA.

The NEA Fine Arts Caucus is a group of NEA members who exist to influence NEA governance in defining its beliefs, setting its policy, designing legislative initiatives and advocating for an arts education for every student, vibrant arts programs in all schools and strong support of our nation's arts educators.

The NEAFAC is established:

1. to promote fine arts and fine arts education in all public schools in the US;

2. to influence the creation and maintenance of policy responsive to the needs of fine arts educators
within the state affiliates and NEA;

3. to actively work toward the implementation of policy through participation and influence on NEA
committees and governance bodies;

4. to provide a mechanism to support candidates for NEA office who will most benefit the cause of
furthering fine arts education within the NEA.

5. to provide a mechanism by which NEA fine arts educators and advocates may introduce recommendations, secure support, and initiate action on concerns of fine arts members at the
national, state and local level;

6. to introduce, enact and monitor “pro-arts” new business items, legislative initiatives and
resolutions at the annual NEA Representative Assembly;

7. to increase awareness among all educators of the need of fine arts specialists in the regular school program;

8. to build a base on arts advocates who will work with arts educators to promote the goals of the caucus;

9. to encourage the establishment of Fine Arts Caucuses at the local level of NEA affiliates.
