CTA State Council of Education

Tony Thurmond and Eric Heins

CTA President Eric Heins (R) introduces Supt. of Public Instruction candidate Tony Thurmond to Council

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.
