Elections and Voting

By the Membership, For the Membership

GAE always has been controlled by its diverse statewide membership—making it an organization that truly represents the concerns of you – the certified professional, the support professional, and the future teacher. From this varied membership comes the Representative Assembly, the highest governing body within the organization. Delegates elected to the Representative Assembly are based on one delegate for every 35 members from each of the 186 local GAE-affiliated associations. The chosen delegates convene to adopt GAE’s policies and resolutions and to finalize GAE’s priorities and budget for the following year.

That is why is it vitally important that you — the member, keep abreast of the Association issues and voice your concerns to your individual delegates who represent you in the voting process.

Please take a moment to peruse and study any notices on election issues and nominations that will ultimately set the tone and direction of your Association.
