NYSUT delegates statewide gear up for the RA

RA 2024

The NYSUT RA heads back to New York City — the Big Apple — for 2024 after several years in Albany. Delegates will meet May 3─4 for a packed schedule of elections, resolutions and events both before and after the conference. The convention kicks off with the Local and Retiree Council Presidents Conference, May 2─3.

In addition to setting the union’s agenda for the next year on topics ranging from pre-K through postgraduate education, legislation, healthcare, organizing and retirement, the RA is also a time to recognize the hard work and dedication of NYSUT members. The union will present its highest honor, the Albert Shanker Award for Distinguished Service, to Sen. Robert Jackson. We will also recognize winners of several NYSUT awards including “Not For Ourselves Alone”: The Sandy Feldman Outstanding Leadership Award, the NYSUT Humanitarian Award, the Ken Kurzweil Social Justice Recognition Award and the NYSUT Life Line Honor Roll. Winners of the union’s constituency awards and honors for members’ and locals’ community service and other outreach will also be recognized.

New this year, the RA will include a CALM room and a FUN room, providing delegates the chance to relax and take a break from the action.
