Independent Associations

Professional Educators of Iowa is proud to be a part of the Coalition of Independent Education Associations (CIEA). This group is made up of non-unionized education associations in states across America. The CIEA collaborates on ways to better serve members in each of our states as well as keeping up with what goes on regarding education at the national level. If you plan to move to another state and will no longer be teaching under a State of Iowa certificate, we encourage you to check into one of the following organizations.
