NEA Representative Assembly

Update: The NEA Board of Directors approved moving the 2021 RA to a virtual event due to pandemic related safety and health concerns. The tentative dates for the RA are Wednesday, June 30 through Saturday, July 3. We will update this page with more information on what form a virtual NEA RA and Texas Caucus will take as we receive updates from NEA. Convention updates will also be found at

The RA is the largest democratic deliberative assembly in the world. It is the primary legislative and policymaking body of the Association and derives its powers from, and is responsible to, the membership. The Representative Assembly adopts the strategic plan and budget, resolutions, the Legislative Program, and other policies of the Association. Additional information may be found on the NEA website at
