CEA is a democratic organization. CEA members play an important role in determining the direction and focus of the Association through several elected governing bodies - from CEA officers to county directors to delegates to the CEA and NEA Representative Assemblies. This area provides information and procedures about elections to these governing bodies.

NEA Representative Assembly County Cluster Nomination Forms
Nomination forms and information about nomination procedures concerning County Cluster delegates can be downloaded and printed from this section when available in late February. NEA requires local affiliates to have at least 76 members to be eligible to send one delegate to the NEA Representative Assembly. To give local affiliates with less than 75 members the opportunity to be represented by a delegate(s), NEA allows state affiliates to organize "clusters." CEA's clusters are organized by counties that have local affiliates with less than 75 members.
