CAEA Regions

CAEA Areas

Each CAEA Region consists of one or more CAEA Areas that is composed of members within geographic parameters of the Region; each Area is required to have governance in the form of an Area Council composed of elected officers including a President, President-elect, Past-President, Secretary, and Treasurer. A CAEA member is automatically affiliated with the Region and Area in which the member resides or works.

CAEA currently has four Areas:
Central Area (composed of members in the Central Region)
Northern Area (composed of members in the Northern Region)
San Diego Area (composed of members in the Southern Region who reside or work in the geographic area in and around San Diego)
Southern Area (composed of members in the Southern Region who are not part of the San Diego Area)
