Delegates-at-Large and Student Delegates

TCTA Active members who teach in school districts with no TCTA local affiliate may serve as voting delegates to the 2021 Representative Assembly. Allocation is made on the basis of one delegate per district for each 50 Active members-at-large (or major fraction thereof).

Student members may serve as nonvoting delegates, and delegate status is allocated on the basis of one delegate for each 50 student members (or major fraction thereof).

Active-level members who teach in school districts without a TCTA local affiliate who are interested in serving as delegates-at-large and student members who are interested in serving as nonvoting student delegates may submit their names to be included in a random drawing that will determine who fills the available delegate spots. Names of potential delegates-at-large and student delegates must be submitted in writing by Dec. 28, 2020, to:
