California Teachers Association
We Are California Educators
We believe our public schools are worth fighting for. That belief has guided our union since 1863. Today, we’re still just as dedicated in the fight for equal access, justice, and resources for all of California’s students, teachers, and classrooms.
Voluntary retirement plans… investment options… fiduciary? What are these things and why are they important to me? Luckily, CTA did the homework for you. Visit CTAinvest.org for a fun and interactive website that has definitions, calculators, and even features real stories by CTA members.
A few notes from CTA...
CTA's top policy-making body is the State Council of Education. Meeting four times a year, the council's nearly 800 delegates elect the three state-level CTA officers and the CTA Board of Directors. Council also sets forth CTA policy, develops legislation, and makes recommendations in general elections.
CTA offers several different educational scholarships to members and their dependents throughout the academic year.
