Conferences and Workshops
The CEA RA, held each May, is CEA's highest policy-making body. During two days of business, approximately 500 delegates take action to decide Association policies, including adopting amendments to the CEA RA Standing Rules, the CEA Constitution and Bylaws, approving revisions to the CEA Resolutions, and voting on new business items.
The RA is convened every July during the Annual Meeting. The first two days are devoted to discussions, conferences, and exhibits-but the highlight is the Representative Assembly itself. During this important event, delegates debate issues that impact American public education, elect top officers, and set policy for the 3.2 million-member Association.
