MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Alabama Education Association board of directors is set to meet Friday night in the wake of a letter from the retired leader of the group, who says the organization is now in crisis.

Paul Hubbert sent a letter this week to the AEA’s board, saying the group is in danger of losing its strong membership and financial might that made it a formidable force in Alabama politics.

Hubbert led the AEA for more than 40 years before retiring in 2011 for health reasons.

Al.com reports (https://bit.ly/X7664e) that AEA President Anita Gibson said in an email that the board would discuss its budget and other financial matters.

Gibson said the regularly scheduled meeting would be open unless the committee decides to go into an executive session.
