The St. Vrain Valley Education Association – SVVEA – is both a professional association and an advocacy organization. Our mission is to advocate for public educators; support professionalism; and promote public education.

SVVEA is affiliated with the 36,000-member Colorado Education Association (CEA) and the nearly 3.2 million members of National Education Association (NEA).

The Association (SVVEA-CEA-NEA) at all three levels is a highly democratic organization governed by its members. The decision-making structure is designed to ensure maximum representation. Members elect colleagues to represent them in all Association matters.

Within SVVEA, the voices of members are clearly heard through two elected representative bodies:

    • The SVVEA Representative Council is our Association’s policy-making, legislative body. It is composed of 66 Association Representatives (AR’s) elected in each school at a ratio of one representative for every 25 members. The Council meets the third Tuesday of each month.
    • The SVVEA Board of Directors is our Association’s executive body. It is comprised of four executive officers, plus eight members elected at large from the membership. The Board meets the second Tuesday of each month.
