Local State Council Representatives (4) and

Members elected as our Local SCTA State Council Representatives are responsible for representing SCTA members on the state level. Representatives must attend 4 meetings throughout the school year currently in Los Angeles (Friday evening – Sunday afternoon). They are also expected to attend monthly rep council meetings. In the event an elected representative is unable to attend a meeting of the State Council of Education, an elected alternate shall be designated to attend the meeting in their place.
NEA REPRESENTATIVE ASSEMBLY
The NEA/RA is in Houston, Texas this year. Delegates will be expected to attend the assembly from July 3rd to July 7th, 2019 (arriving July 2nd and departing July 8th). The NEA/RA is an amazing assembly where members of NEA from all over the country gather together and through democratic process, using Roberts Rules determine the policies of our national organization. It is the largest democratic body in our nation. If elected to represent your colleagues at the NEA/RA you will be required to attend all California Caucuses which begin at 7:00 am and all sessions of the full NEA body which will meet until the conclusion of all business items on the last day of the assembly. There are countless other caucuses and meetings to get involved in if you choose. Please click here to see the SCTA policy on delegate requirements. You will also find more information at the NEA website:
SCTA has budgeted to support 12 delegate positions with the recommended stipend amount of up to $2000. There may be the possibility of other unfuded positions. The delegate positions will be decided in the order of the number of votes received for each candidate. Please click to view the NEA RA Election Announcement and the Candidacy Form. Candidacy Forms, photos and statements are due to the SCTA office by 5pm on January 31st. Please follow directions carefully.
