The Federation will now hold its convention biennially. The next CFT Convention will be held March 26-28, 2021, at the Westin St. Francis in downtown San Francisco.
Between Conventions, the State Council makes decisions for the Federation. All locals may send delegates to State Council. It meets twice yearly.
The union’s Division Councils represent the educational divisions of the CFT and retired members. The councils meet regularly to share information and to formulate policy proposals for constituent members. Get to know your division of the CFT and join in the discussion!
The standing committees of the CFT meet regularly to examine issues of importance to educators and unions, ranging from special education to labor education. The committees also put forth policy proposals for the CFT in their areas of expertise.
The Committee meetings during the coming year are posted below. Learn more about our union committees and the members who serve on them.
While the CFT legislative staff works hard to promote legislation on behalf of members, your presence in the halls of the Legislature gives a human face to the CFT and our fight for high-quality education. The CFT hosts provides numerous opportunities for you to meet with state legislators one-on-one and share your experiences from the workplace.
