Following is a poem read by NEA President Reg Weaver at a regional conference:

ARE YOU AN ACTIVE MEMBER OR DO YOU JUST BELONG

Are you an active member the kind that would be missed?

Or are you just contented that your name is on the list?

Do you attend the meetings and mingle with the flock?

Or do you stay at home to criticize and knock?

Do you take an active part to help the work along?

Or are you satisfied to only just belong?

Do you work with your committee and get right in and mix?

Or leave the work to just a few and talk about the cliques?

Think it over, memberYou know right from wrong!

Are you an active member or do you just belong?
