January 29, 2016 is the deadline to submit the official Declaration of Candidacy form for state delegates to the 2016 NEA convention in Washington, D.C.

The Declaration of Candidacy form for state delegates is available here and in the December 2015/January 2016 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.

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 July 1-8. CTA will reimburse state delegates up to $2,250 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 2, and the annual meeting of the Representative Assembly runs July 4-7.

In keeping with CTA’s commitment to minority involvement, members who are ethnic minorities are urged to become candidates.
