ECCTYC is governed by its constitution and administered by its officers — a President, First Vice president, Second Vice president, Secretary, Treasurer, and Immediate Past President — and twenty Regional Directors, two from each of the state’s ten regions plus two Adjunct Directors at-large who represent the hundreds of part-time English faculty throughout the state.


Regional elections for Director positions are held in the spring of each year at the conclusion of each sitting Director’s two-year term. The Officers of ECCTYC are elected directly by the members of the Board.


English departments in two-year colleges hold institutional memberships in ECCTYC. Individuals who wish to support ECCTYC further may become sustaining members. English teachers in California are automatically members of TYCA Pacific Coast, though they must be members of NCTE to be members of TYCA National.
