CEA Early Career Educator Socials
October - November
One of the best things you can do for yourself as an early-career educator is make time to socialize with other new teachers. Join us for free food, networking, and a chance to bounce ideas, tips, and questions off your colleagues. CEA Early-Career Educator Socials are being held in locations throughout the state for teachers with up to seven years’ classroom experience. Bring a colleague or two and come to one of them!
Fall Bridgeport Area Ethnic Minority Affairs Commission Gathering
Network with other teachers of color from the Bridgeport area and share your thoughts on continuing CEA's work to achieve racial and social justice in our local communities and in Connecticut.
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.
