For safety reasons and in order to comply with all laws and regulations relating to the continuing pandemic, the 2021 NYSUT Representative Assembly and Local and Retiree Council Presidents Conference — held during the last week of April and concluding May 1 — will be held virtually.
“Plans are underway for delegates to come together in solidarity to represent our members,” said NYSUT President Andy Pallotta.
“Although we aren’t able to meet in person this year, we are thankful to be able to convene online to conduct the important business of our union.”
That important business includes setting the union’s course. The RA is NYSUT’s highest policymaking body. RA delegates will debate 14 resolutions on a number of topics including legislation, pre-K through post grad education, and civil and human rights.
Regents Chancellor Dr. Lester Young Jr. and state Commissioner of Education Dr. Betty Rosa will be speaking at the opening session of the Local and Retiree Council Presidents Conference. Speakers for the RA will be announced later.
This year’s RA will once again include a salute to winners of NYSUT awards and recognitions.
