Jace joined the WEA-Riverside team in September of 2007 as a UniServ Director. A strong association needs member input and involvement, and Jace is very excited to be able to work with the membership of WEA-Riverside and to help support public education on their behalf. Jace was an educator for twenty years before joining WEA, twelve of those years being in Renton, Washington teaching high school French. His involvement with the association began as a building rep then increased as his interest in association work grew. Jace has been a trainer/presenter at WEALA, WEA bargaining conferences, SPARKS, and other conferences over the years
