CEA holds a variety of meetings, conferences and workshops for the benefit of its members. We have annual conferences and also hold workshops in your school district if you request it. We also list conferences of interest for educators. Let us know if you would like us to post your conference here.
Governor's Council on Climate Change (GC3) Stakeholder Events
5:30 PM - 7:30 PM (refreshments available at 5:00pm)
The primary/central location will be in Hartford, with 9 satellite locations across the state (from Goshen to Groton and from Norwalk to Killingly). Participants at the satellite locations will view the presentation via video link and then engage in facilitated dialogue at the local level.
The GC3 is seeking input from stakeholders as it develops a set of strategies to achieve the state's mandated goal of a 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions below 2001 levels by 2050.
Participants in the July stakeholder events will have an opportunity to learn about the initial results of the modeling scenarios, provide feedback to the GC3 members on the priorities incorporated within those scenarios, and engage in local dialogue about some of the policy implications of the initial results: Which activities should be prioritized for early implementation? What criteria should be used in identifying the communities/regions where we should focus limited resources in the short-term?

Treasurer/Membership Chairperson workshops will be held in the evening in four locations around the state this September and we are going to once again do an afternoon workshop in August. These workshops will deal with membership processing procedures, special services, and treasurers' responsibilities including dues obligation/transmittal, tax filing obligations, and agency fee issues. We especially encourage new officers and chairpersons to attend, but recommend that all treasurers and membership chairs attend annually to review procedures.
The entire cost of the workshop, meal included, will be fully paid by CEA. Please call (860) 525-5641 and ask for the CEA business office for any questions or concerns.
If you require special accommodations in order to fully participate in this activity please let us know when you register so that we can make special arrangements
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.
