SRP Advisory Committee

NYSUT SRP Advisory Committee

NYSUT's School-Related Professionals Advisory Committee has been in existence for more than 30 years. It was constituted to advise NYSUT of issues and items important to school-related professionals and to aid NYSUT by making recommendations as to how these concerns may be satisfied. The committee also plans the annual statewide fall leadership conference held for colleagues.

Members of this committee attend four full advisory meetings per year in Albany, take an active role in the subcommittee to which the chair appoints them, attend local Election District meetings, keep their area locals informed of pertinent issues, and are available to bring your concerns to the full committee. Members serve a three year term and are appointed by NYSUT President Dick Iannuzzi on recommendations of Election District Directors. These committee members come from different regions in New York state and represent the varied SRP job titles. The chair is appointed by President Iannuzzi, and sees to all matters concerning the committee.

Many of the gains the SRP membership has won over the past years are directly due to the hard work and dedication of these committee members and your elected SRP Directors. Your voice, along with the other 92,000 SRP members of NYSUT, is heard through this active and important committee.
