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.

*Please note that due to COVID-19 State Council of Education Meetings are currently being held virtually. We do not yet know if meetings will be in person or held virtually next fall. The current virtual format holds orientation, committee meetings and some optional caucus meetings during the weekday in the evenings prior to the main business of Local Directorial Sessions (Sacramento is District E) and General Session on Saturdays.

Candidacy Forms, photos and statements are due to the SCTA office by 5:00 p.m., Thursday, February 4, 2021. (Postmarked date not accepted.)   Please follow directions carefully.


The NEA-RA is in Denver Colorado this year, however due to COVID-19 we expect the assembly to take place virtually with no travel.  Delegates will be expected to attend the assembly from July 2 to July 6, 2020 (see update from 1.27.2021 below).  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:

The number of virtual positions TBD; pending NEA/CTA notification.  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, Timeline, and the Downloadable PDF Candidacy Form.

Candidacy Forms, photos and statements are due to the SCTA office by 5:00 p.m., Thursday, February 4, 2021.  (Postmarked date not accepted.) Please follow directions carefully.
