Our Strategic Plan

After a months-long and in-depth planning process, NCAE’s new strategic plan was formally adopted by the Board of Directors and by members during the 2023 NCAE Convention in March. Learn more about the plan that puts us on a path to achieve our vision of 20,000 dollars per student funding and 30,000 members by 2030 and it represents a critical step forward for our organization.

To accomplish our vision of $20K for every student and 30K members by 2030, we will integrate effective organizational practices and lead with our commitment to racial and social justice within three strategic priorities: Grow Our Union, Lead Our Professions, and Restore the Promise of Public Schools and Our Democracy.


Members helped create NCAE's Strategic Plan, they voted to adopt it in April 2023, and now it's up to members to help put it into action.


Hear from NCAE President Tamika Walker Kelly and NCAE Executive Director Matt Aber-Towns about the status of our strategic plan heading into 2024.
