Members are elected to the NCTE Executive Committee each spring, for terms ranging from two to four years. The job of the executive committee is to:
- establish priorities and direction for the Council,
- to make policy,
- to provide administrative oversight,
- and to model leadership practices that are consistent with our mission and values.
The NCTE Executive Committee meets five times annually.
As described in the NCTE Constitution and By-laws, the Executive Committee shares public policy making responsibility with the NCTE Board of Directors (BOD), a group consisting of affiliate leaders, journal editors, and conference and commission leaders from NCTE's many constituencies. The NCTE BOD meets at the NCTE Annual Convention.
