TVEA Elections Committee 

The Elections Committees ensures the election process is conducted in a manner that voters and candidates alike can be assured that reasonable rules of ethical conduct and procedures have been adopted, and are followed both in spirit and practice. They oversee the entire elections process from announcing elections through the announcement of election results.


The elections committee has a chair and members who are appointed by the President and confirmed by the Executive Board at the beginning of each year.  Executive Board members are not permitted to serve on the Elections Committee, per CTA guidelines.

The vested elections committee members are solely responsible for the counting and reporting of votes and results.  Other members may volunteer to prepare election materials.  TVEA is pleased to have an elections committee filled to capacity and representation from all instructional levels.




The NEA Representative Assembly is the largest democratic deliberative assembly in the world. California sends more than 1,000 delegates to the NEA RA each summer. During this annual meeting, CTA members help set policy and chart the direction of NEA business through participation on various committees, constituencies, caucuses, and leadership groups.  It is the largest democratic deliberative assembly at over 8,000 delegates and an experience not to be missed. TVEA hopes our members will consider participating and giving TVEA a voice in the National Education Association policy making body.

The NEA Representative Assembly for 2021 will be held virtually June 30 - July 2nd . Each candidate filing a declaration form will receive an acknowledgment of receipt. 

TVEA will be holding online elections for NEA Representative Assembly Local Delegate from March 15-18th.  TVEA will elect up to nine (9) members to act as delegates for the association.  Declarations of Candidacy must be received at the TVEA office no later than 5:00 on February 22nd (Postmarked date not accepted).  Please email your Declaration form to
