Representative Assembly

Due to the ongoing uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, OEA will be hosting it 2021 Representative Assembly in a virtual format this year - stretching our typical two-day assembly into a week of smaller sessions. The RA will culminate with an evening session on Thursday, April 15 and Friday, April 16; and a full-day live virtual session on Saturday, April 17.

On this page, you'll find up-to-date information about the schedule of events, as well as information about delegate materials and how to prepare for the virtual event (tech requirements, troubleshooting contacts, and more).
