Jan. 31, 2013, is the deadline to submit the official Declaration of Candidacy form for state delegates to the 2013 NEA convention in Atlanta, GA.
Declaration of Candidacy forms for state delegates are available on the CTA website in the December 2012/January 2013 California Educator. They are not being circulated through any other channels. Chapter presidents will not be distributing these forms to chapter members. It is the responsibility of each member wishing to run for state delegate to fill out the Declaration of Candidacy form (or photocopy) and file it by the deadline.
Each candidate filing a declaration form will receive an acknowledgment of receipt.
In order to attend the Representative Assembly, you must pay for your meals, hotel room and transportation for June 30-July 7. CTA will reimburse state delegates up to $1,950 with appropriate receipts. If a delegate stays within the CTA meal allowance, shares a room with another delegate and purchases a super-saver airline ticket (if applicable), the CTA reimbursement should cover delegate expenses.
The first caucus meeting is set for July 1, and the annual meeting of the Representative Assembly runs July 3-6.
In keeping with CTA’s commitment to minority involvement, members who are ethnic minorities are urged to become candidates.
For more information, or if your chapter has not initiated an election by March 29, 2013, contact the Elections Committee through CTA Governance Support, P.O. Box 921, Burlingame, CA 94011-0921; (650) 552-5300.
