A subdivision is a state, province, or Canada-wide unit comprised of members of a specific CEC division. For example, the Virginia DEC Subdivision (often referred to as "VA DEC") is comprised of all DEC members in Virginia.
Subdivisions provide networking, professional development, and information-sharing for division members in their state, province, or Canada. Typical subdivision activities include sponsoring sessions, strands or workshops at state or provincial conferences; publishing a newsletter; political advocacy; and supporting the activities of their division and state or province. Each subdivision's activities determined by its members and officers.
