Local leaders interview and consider candidates STEP THREE 3. recommendations State Council votes on STEP TWO 2. Local leaders make recommendations to state leaders Photo by Jeff Walters CTA'S RECOMMENDATION PROCESS STARTS WITH YOU CTA's recommendations for all elections are made by CTA members focused on what will best serve Califor- nia's public education system and the needs of our students. Our process for recommending candidates and positions is rigorous, involving local teachers and education support professionals from throughout California. The Political Involvement Committee (PIC) facilitates and reviews the recommendation process. It begins with a CTA member committee that conducts in-depth interviews with each candidate, and then makes preliminary recommendations to the CTA Board of Directions. These recommendations are then de- cided by CTA's top governing body, the 800-member State Council of Education. Candidates must receive 60 percent or more of the vote of State Council members. As always, these are recommendations, and the final decision belongs with you. GET OUT AND VOTE! CTA President Dean Vogel, Vice President Eric Heins and Secretary-Treasurer Mikki Cichocki encourage you to Get out and Vote! 26 California Educator October 2012
