Advocating for Our Students, Educators and the Profession
CTA’s Board of Directors oversees the implementation of all CTA policies from the State Council of Education. Board members serve on numerous committees and task forces within CTA and with state and local agencies. At the direction of the President, they represent members in the news media, before civic and community groups and with governmental agencies.
The CTA Board of Directors is composed of 23 teachers, 16 of whom are elected from geographically drawn districts with 10,000 or more members. In addition, two At-Large Directors represent ethnic minorities statewide; one Director represents higher education members; and one Board seat is reserved for a California member of the Board of Directors of the National Education Association. The three Executive Officers bring the total to 23.
