You can represent CTA at NEA’s 2018 convention

January 31, 2018, is the deadline to submit the official Declaration of Candidacy form for state delegates to the 2018 NEA convention in Minneapolis.

The Declaration of Candidacy form for state delegates is available here and in the December 2017/January 2018 California Educator. 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.

Service Center Councils will begin accepting state delegate Declaration of Candidacy forms on Jan. 4, 2018. 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 29–July 6. CTA will reimburse state delegates up to $2,000 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 June 30, and the annual meeting of the Representative Assembly runs July 2–5.

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 23, 2018, contact the Elections Committee through CTA Governance Support, P.O. Box 921, Burlingame, CA 94011-0921; 650-552-5300.
