CECA is directed by a Board of Directors that meets a minimum of three times each year. When possible, the Board will delegate many of its activities to committees to study a given subject and make recommendations to the Board and the membership:
- Governmental Affairs and Political Action
- Education and Training
- Meetings and Conventions
When subjects arise requiring a special committee to study a subject and guide it through to conclusion, the Board will appoint a special committee on the subject matter.
Once a direction is established, this direction becomes either a long-range goal or a short-range goal and will be given to the staff to implement.
