NEA's Annual Meeting takes place during the final week of June and/or the first week of July. Various committees, constituencies, caucuses, leadership groups, and delegates from state and local affiliates gather to set policy and chart the direction of NEA business.
The Representative Assembly (RA) takes place during the final four days of the Annual Meeting. 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. Delegates vote by secret ballot on proposed amendments to the Constitution and Bylaws. Those delegates with full voting rights elect the executive officers, Executive Committee members, and at-large members of the NEA Board of Directors, as appropriate.
The RA consists of some 8,000 delegates representing state and local affiliates, student members, retired members, and other segments of the united education profession.

About the Non-Profit Fundraising Expo
The first two days of the Annual Meeting offer more free time to delegates who come to the convention center to register and attend the NEA Expo. Once NEA's Representative Assembly starts, the organization hosts a small Non-Profit Fundraising Expo to raise money and/or share information to support state and local projects approved by their Association. In most cases, non-profit exhibitors are local or state associations or caucuses who raise money for special projects. Exhibitors who are not state/local associations or an official NEA caucus are considered commercial exhibitors allowed when sponsored by a local or state association or NEA caucus.
