Make sure the Hawaii State Teachers Association and the National Education Association are able to contact you so you don't miss out on important updates and information!

Normally the HSTA works through our faculty representatives to collect updates from members regarding their contact information on an annual basis through a paper process.

Now, the NEA edCommunities online platform allows you to update your contact information at your convenience through a secure member database that tracks members’ data across any NEA-affiliated school district employment.

If you have not already done so, please create an account on NEA edCommunities and ensure your information, especially your mailing address, is up to date. Important information will be sent to the addresses on file, e.g., voter information for our HSTA elections in February, and contract negotiations and ratification.

Please note: Updating your personal email address in edCommunities will not change the email address you use to subscribe to HSTA’s weekly Member Matters email newsletter. Click here for instructions on how to update your Member Matters email subscription.
