Who are your local association delegates? : Your local association delegates to MSEA’s representative assembly (RA) are your colleagues, elected by members in your local to represent you at MSEA’s most important annual event. The RA discusses and votes on proposed bylaw amendments, new business items, and resolutions that delegates present for debate from the RA floor.
What else happens at the RA? : Delegates will hear from MSEA leaders and top education policymakers; introduce, debate, and vote on MSEA new business items, resolutions, and bylaw amendments that help guide the association's activities and engagement in education issues; and make endorsements.
What’s a bylaw amendment? : MSEA’s bylaws are the set of rules adopted by the representative assembly to govern its meetings or business. A bylaw amendment is submitted by a member, supported by at least 9 additional members, and presented at the annual RA. The proposed amendment must be submitted at least 90 days before the RA. There were no bylaw amendments submitted this year.
What’s a new business item? : A new business Item (NBI) is a statement or action requested by a member that is discussed and debated by the assembled delegates at the RA. An NBI may originate and be presented at the RA; if passed by the representative assembly, an NBI may require specific action by MSEA leaders, committees, or staff.
