A subdivision is a state or provincial group comprised of members of a specific CEC international 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 or province. Typical subdivision activities include sponsoring sessions, strands or workshops at state or provincial conferences; political advocacy; and supporting the activities of their division and state or provincial unit of CEC. Each subdivision's activities are determined by its members and officers.


Active subdivisions must report officers to their division and state/provincial unit each year.
