CEA-Retired provides its members a forum to continue a commitment to improve public education by working with active members. The organization encourages member participation at the political level by promoting CEA and NEA legislative agendas. CEA-Retired also offers its members opportunities to stay connected through social events and community service initiatives



CEA-Retired is the only retired teachers' organization in Connecticut that is affiliated with CEA and NEA. If you've been a member of CEA throughout your teaching career, stay involved with the organizations that have worked for you!
