If your plans for the summer include some well-deserved travel to give you rest and recuperation for the past nine months with your students, here is some help from member benefits to stretch your summer budget.  Whether you wish to work in a cruise, take in some major league sporting events, fly east (or west or north or south) to visit relatives, spend some time at a resort (a week or just a few days,) or just save some money while resting up at home on a “staycation”, follow these tips to save some money:

 

With the Educator Access Discount Program, you can save on hotels, condos and resorts, golf, dining, movies, recreation, and other every-day pleasantries.  Go to the IEA Member Benefits website, ieamemberbenefits.org scroll down and click on the picture of the IEA membership card to take you to the Access website.  Register with the last 7 digits of your association membership number, your personal e-mail address, and create a password.  You only need to register once.  Each time thereafter you sign in with your e-mail and password.  Spend some time there and explore the hundreds and thousands of discounts available.  The site will also show you how to download an app that is GPS friendly and will help you save money wherever you are.

IEA MEMBERS LIKE THE BENEFITS AVAILABLE TO THEM

Nearly five dozen association member benefits are available to IEA/NEA members.  Ranging from financial benefits to insurance benefits to discounts to travel benefits to professional benefits, IEA members participate at a greater rate than NEA members nationwide. 

 

 

Statistics for the 2016-17 membership year (the latest figures available) show that the market share of IEA member participation in most benefits is consistently better than the market share from all NEA members combined.  Market share is simply a percentage of members who participate as compared to total membership.

 

Eighteen percent or IEA members hold an NEA life insurance policy, better than the national market penetration of 12%.  Eleven percent of IEA members own an accidental death and dismemberment policy.  A whopping 2800 members hold an auto/home insurance policy with California Casualty, a market share of 27%, far outpacing the national penetration of four percent. This is the most used benefit product used by IEA members.  The second most used NEA member benefit is the credit card option; 1/5 (20%) of IEA members use an NEA credit card, greater than the national market penetration of 14%.

 

Since 2000 IEA member participation in IEA/NEA member benefits has ranked in the top 10% of market share of all the 51 NEA affiliates!!  Congratulations!

Athletic Grants DA 2018

Two Idaho Schools Score 2018 Athletics Grants from California Casualty

 

Burley Jr/Sr. High School and Firth Middle School each received a $1000 grant; Burley’s grant will pay for cross country uniforms and Firth’s will provide volleyball uniforms and equipment.  The local presidents from Cassia County and Firth accepted the awards at the IEA Delegate Assembly on April 20.

 

Athletes at 79 public middle schools and high schools in 32 states will benefit from the 2018 California Casualty Thomas R. Brown Athletics Grant program. More than $83,000 is being given to aid sports programs affected by tight budgets.  California Casualty ensures autos and homes as an IEA Member Benefits business partner since 1988.

 

The grant is named for California Casualty Chairman Emeritus Tom Brown, an avid sportsman who believes that teamwork, confidence and sportsmanship help develop high achievers in academics and in life. Since its inception in 2011, more than $660,000 has been awarded to some 600 schools across the nation.

 

“All students should have the opportunity to compete,” said Lisa Almeida, Assistant Vice President. “California Casualty’s 67-year commitment to educators and schools also reaches to athletic fields.”
