Oregon's Representative Assembly at CEC's National Convention
This year’s Representative Assembly meeting in Tampa gave members the opportunity to provide feedback on understanding and addressing Special Education teacher attrition. Representatives discussed needs regarding early career special education and early intervention teacher retention, what units and divisions are already doing about the retention of those teachers, and what CEC should be doing at the international level in terms of retention.
2017’s Representative Assembly meeting in Boston gave members the opportunity to provide feedback on a work committee's draft of principles and recommendations for IDEA reauthorization. CEC is not pushing for reauthorization at this time, but instead seeking to be prepared in the event that it occurs under the current United States administration. For more information or updates about the recommendations, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

Leadership is reviewing the organization's governance system. This has not happened in nearly 20 years, and the current system is not reflective of best practices in association management.
