Trustees of the Wisconsin Education Association Insurance Trust (Trust) oversee the operations of both the Trust and its wholly owned insurance subsidiary, the WEA Insurance Corporation. Trustees are elected by Trust policyholders to staggered three-year terms. Four Trustee positions are being selected this election cycle.
The election gives Trust policyholders a voice in governance by deciding who oversees the operations of the Trust.
All eligible subscribers who have a WEA Trust insurance policy may vote. An eligible subscriber is the name of the person holding the policy. An eligible subscriber may only vote once, regardless of how many policies the subscriber has with the Trust. Spouses and dependents are not eligible to vote unless they hold a separate WEA Trust insurance policy in their name.
Shortly before the 2023 voting period opens, Trust policyholders will receive information by mail on how to cast a vote through a secure website or by phone. Voting is open from April 7 through May 8, 2023.
