President’s Letter 
By: Tye Gillespie, CCEA President

When I joined the CCEA board 7 years ago, I couldn’t have imagined what the next years would hold.  The challenges we overcame.  The people who worked as a team.  The problems we solved.  And the things we just kept plugging away at.

Thank you for your  support and for the opportunity to serve as president of this association.  It has been a great privilege and honor.  All the best to you and yours for the next 7 years and beyond.




CCEA Support for Investigation Witnesses

By: Hallie Thompson, Vice President

Being part of a fact-finding investigation can be confusing and stressful. As a witness, you are not the subject of the investigation, but you cannot talk about the investigation with your coworkers or managers. It can be a months-long process. Just remember, that we’re here for you. 

We would like to let you know that we are available as a resource or for support.  Please reach out to us for guidance, support, and assistance. 

You can email info@carlsbadcea.org, or reach out via phone or in person to any CCEA representative.
