CCAE HLPAE Chapter

Overview

With over 3,000 members, the California Council for Adult Education (CCAE) is the largest professional organization serving adult education in California. 

CCAE is the only professional association serving all levels of California's Adult Education community, including teachers, classified, administrators, and students.

Mission

The mission of the California Council for Adult Education is to take a leadership role in promoting adult education, providing professional development, and affecting change to best serve the needs and interests of adult education, the CCAE membership and the people of California.

Purpose

Legislation - Sponsoring, endorsing, monitoring supporting and gaining  backing  for Legislation that provides positive support for adult schools, adult education, adult students and communities is a prominent focus for CCAE. Specific activities include our annual Legislative Day in Sacramento, testifying at legislative hearings, working with Legislators at both the local and state levels, letter writing campaigns, keeping our own members informed, and the employment of a Legislative Advocate are some of the activities that we are involved in.

Professional Development - A second focus of CCAE is to provide Professional Development opportunities for all of our members, Certificated and Classified. This occurs primarily at our annual State and Section conferences where workshops, speakers and seminars are presented for our members.

Recognition - A third focus of CCAE is the recognition of excellent performances by adult educators, students and support staff through both scholarships and awards at the State, Section, and Chapter levels. An annual award is also presented to an individual State Legislator who provided consistent and strong support for the adult education family during the year. It is presented at our annual Legislative Day.
