MSTA is made up of local Community Teacher Associations (CTAs) within each school district — an organizational structure that reflects MSTA’s strong commitment to local control. CTA members elect individuals to represent them at MSTA’s annual business meeting. At this Assembly of Delegates, the official positions of the association are debated and voted on.
In addition, each region in the state elects representatives to the MSTA Board of Directors. The board makes policy and staff decisions and is responsible for the budget.
