More than 30 delegates representing the Columbus Education Association participated in the second Ohio Caucus for the 2010 NEA Representative Assembly (RA), held in New Orleans, Louisiana. During the caucus, delegates received reports from Ohio Education Association officers and staff. Delegates also listened to a number of speeches from candidates seeking a variety of elected positions within the National Education Association.
Following the caucus, delegates registered at the Morial Convention Center. While the RA does not officially start until Saturday, July 3, many delegates chose to browse the dozens of vendors at the exhibition hall. Vendors provided many free resources to the teachers, including pens, tote bags, school supplies and other items.
