In addition to debating resolutions that will set the union’s course for the next year, delegates to the 2020 NYSUT Representative Assembly will elect the officers and members of the NYSUT Board of Directors to threeyear terms.
This year’s annual policymaking convention takes place May 1–2 at the Nelson A. Rockefeller Empire State Plaza and Capital Center in Albany. The convention is preceded by the Local and Retiree Council Presidents Conference.
“The annual convention is an exciting time for us here at NYSUT,” said President Andy Pallotta. “Having members and leaders from across the state come together in solidarity shows the strength and power of our union. That same power enables us to fight for our members — and for those in our communities who may not have a voice.”
RA delegates will also be charged with electing state delegates and alternate state delegates to the American Federation of Teachers.
Local leaders should be sure to visit nysut.org/ra for a list of important upcoming RA deadlines, including deadlines for forming a council of locals, and submitting resolutions and amendments to the NYSUT Constitution and Bylaws.
