VBEA Legislative Committee

The VBEA Legislative Committee has three goals:

1.  Keep the association informed of legislative issues at the state and national levels.
2. Establish a state legislative team.
3. Continue expansion of the state legislative network of teachers.


The VBEA Legislative Committee represents business educators from throughout the Commonwealth.  Each of the 11 regional representatives to the VBEA Board identifies a team of 10 members and encourages individual and team action in legislative activities.
