State/Provincial Unit and Division Leadership

Each of CEC's State/Provincial Units and Divisions is governed by its own board of directors.  Divisions and Units' typical activities include sponsoring an annual conference and other professional development events, publishing a newsletter or journal, political advocacy, and supporting the activities and positions of the Council for Exceptional Children.

Summer Leadership Institute

Leaders from CEC’s Divisions and State & Provincial Units came to CEC headquarters July 21-24, 2014 for our annual Summer Leadership Institutes. We hold the Leadership Institutes every year to assist divisions and units in active participation in the structure and strategic direction of CEC and build capacity in divisions and units so they may work effectively with members, chapters and subdivisions.

New for 2014, this year's institutes featured a joint session for State/Provincial Unit and Division leaders to come together to network and discuss the strategic direction of CEC.  This year's Summer Leadership Institutes were chaired by Christy Chambers, CEC's Immediate Past President.
