Just log in and then click on “My eDues” to sign up for automatic payment of your dues or to make manual payments using the new system.
To learn more about the new system and it’s features, you can download this eDues flyer or check out our Frequently Asked Questions.
Update Your Information
On the "My Information" tab, you can update your contact information and enter demographic information about yourself to help MEA better serve you. Make sure you’re on MEA’s email list by entering your home email address. NEW: You can now print a temporary membership card!
MEA's new mobile app for iPhones and Android devices is now available!
MEA members can now access MEA information and news via a new mobile app for iPhones and Android devices. You can link to the app or go into the iPhone "App Store" or Android's "Google Play" and search for "Michigan Education Association."
The new app features handy access to MEA's news feed, the Voice magazine, MEA Advantage member benefits information, the Help Center, MEA's calendar and field office directory, and our various social media outlets-Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Flickr.
There's also a mobile platform to find your legislator, MEA's online Election 2014 voter guide, instructions and access for the My Deals mobile app for discounts through the Access program, and the ability to send a digital postcard to someone with various options for art, stationary and messages. The app also has a link to make your online donation to MEA-PAC.
Since this is publicly available on the app stores, to access some "Members Only" areas of the new app, you will need to use your six-digit member number and your last name.
This is MEA's first step into the mobile app world and we plan on making additions and changes along the way to make sure you can access MEA information quickly and easily. But, for now, MEA is excited to offer the app as another member benefit.
Whether you’re headed out for dinner at a local restaurant or shopping online at a national chain, turn your dues into savings using the MEA Advantage Discount Search, powered by Access. If you need a replacement card click here.
