GAE Representative Assembly
Although we are an affiliate of the National Education Association, GAE always has been controlled by its own diverse statewide membership—making it an organization of the members and for the members. 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 180+ 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.
