NEA Representative Assembly

The Annual Meeting takes place during the final week of June and/or the first week of July. Various committees, constituencies, caucuses, leadership groups, and delegates from state and local affiliates gather to set policy and chart the direction of NEA business. The RA consists of some 8,000 delegates representing state and local affiliates, student members, retired members, and other segments of the united education profession.

The Representative Assembly (RA) takes place during the final four days of the Annual Meeting. It is the primary legislative and policymaking body of the association and derives its powers from, and is responsible to, the membership. The RA adopts the strategic plan and budget, resolutions, the legislative program, and other policies of the association. Delegates vote by secret ballot on proposed amendments to the Constitution and Bylaws. Those delegates with full voting rights elect the executive officers, executive committee members, and at-large members of the NEA Board of Directors, as appropriate.
