Teachers from Around the State Gather to Decide CEA Policy
Nearly 400 CEA members are gathered this weekend for the CEA Representative Assembly (RA), which is underway tonight in Cromwell. The CEA RA is CEA’s highest policy-making body. Today and tomorrow delegates – elected from CEA’s more than 160 local affiliates – are taking action to decide Association policies.
Some highlights from tonight include a speech by 2013 Connecticut Teacher of the Year Blaise Messinger, the presentation of the CEA Friend of Education Award to long-time, recently retired CEA attorney Ron Cordilico, and a look back at the Bridgeport teachers’ strike. CEA President Sheila Cohen thanked the dedicated Bridgeport educators whose actions helped bring about Connecticut’s binding arbitration law.
Stay tuned Monday for full details from the CEA RA.
