Representative Assembly

Representative Assembly

Each year CEC determines current issues special educators are facing. These issues are formulated into questions which are sent out to each state to get member response and feedback. Yearly the representative meet to discuss the views of the members at the Representative Assembly (RA). Our Alaska CEC Representatives are the President and Vice President. If they are unable to attend they appoint a proxy who is able to attend.

CEC’s Representative Assembly is CEC’s advisory body. Representative Assembly members represent CEC’s entire membership. They identify issues and advise the Board of Directors on positions CEC should take on issues related to the field and profession; inform the Board of Directors, CEC affiliates and divisions, and committees, of membership issues and perspectives; and acts as a forum to examine prospective ideas, strategy directions, policy initiatives, and other issues. The Representative Assembly meets formally once a year at the CEC Convention & Expo.

The Representative Assembly is composed of two representatives from each state and provincial affiliate, division, and student membership and the Board of Directors.
