State Council of Education

CTA is rigorously democratic. Its structure gives members the ultimate voice in what the Association does. By secret ballot, you and your colleagues elect the 760-plus members of the State Council of Education, CTA’s highest governing body. Meeting four times a year, State Council sets policy for the organization, adopts the budget, determines dues, recommends expenditures to the board, elects the executive officers and other members of the board of directors and performs other similar duties.

Highlights from the Field-Based State Council - October 22 & 23

The October State Council meeting was reimagined to ensure passage of two key initiatives - Propositions 5558 - on the November 8 ballot. During these two days, Council members were deployed into the community to reach out to voters via phone banking, precinct walking and by utilizing social media avenues. Members selected the location closest to their work or home to carry out the important task of Getting Out The Vote.  

There was a lot to do to ensure passage of these two very important initiatives - and we succeeded!  In order for us to have had the most successful weekend, Council members were asked to be present and participate for a minimum of five hours each day.
