CEA's annual meetings typically span two days and consist of a closed board of directors meeting followed by policy sessions, evening receptions, and dinners.
Internal business is conducted in the closed board of directors meetings while public policy and issue-oriented topics are discussed during the open meeting/policy sessions.
CEA organizes legislative meetings to discuss national initiatives that affect county governments. Legislative meetings are not necessarily planned in advance but are organized when needed in response to current events.
