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.

The NEA-RA is expected to be in Chicago, Illinois if held in person this year, however due to COVID-19 the assembly may take place virtually with no travel.  Delegates will be expected to attend the assembly from approximately July 2-6, 2022 (exact dates TBD). 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 may also find more information online at:
