The National Education Association Representative Assembly (RA) is NEA’s highest decision-making body

With over 9,000 delegates, it is also the world’s largest democratic, deliberative body. The NEA RA convenes every July during the Annual Meeting. The first two days are devoted to discussions, conferences, and exhibits, but the highlight is the Representative Assembly itself. During this important event, delegates debate issues that impact American public education, elect top officers, and set policy for the 3.2 million-member Association
