The wait is officially over — the 2023 NYSUT Representative Assembly is here!
As delegates arrive and get settled in, the weekend promises to be chock full of policy making, activism, solidarity and tearful goodbyes as we bid farewell to two beloved NYSUT officers and welcome in the next generation of union leadership.
This year the statewide union will host the inaugural NYSUT Runs New York Family 5K. We hope delegates and members will join us for a beautiful walk/run course along the Hudson River to benefit the Albany Fund for Education.
Other highlights include an expanded Local and Retiree Council Presidents Conference, April 27–28, and debate on more than 30 resolutions ranging from pre-K through postgraduate education, to legislation, health care, organizing and retirement. Delegates will also consider an amendment to the NYSUT Constitution.
The statewide union will also recognize the work of outstanding activists with several awards, including the “Not For Ourselves Alone”: The Sandy Feldman Outstanding Leadership Award, the Ken Kurzweil Social Justice Recognition Award and the NYSUT Life Line Honor Roll. Union constituency award winners and community service and outreach award winners will also be recognized.
So, get excited — the 2023 NYSUT RA has arrived! For more information, visit nysut.org/RA.
