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 are now available for the 2020 County Cluster nominations to the NEA Representative Assembly (NEA RA). To be eligible for nomination, all nomination forms should have been submitted online by March 31, 2020.
Nomination forms and information about nomination procedures concerning County Cluster delegates will be 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 76 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 76 members.
County cluster nominations must be postmarked no later than Tuesday, March 31.
