The business of the meeting will include nominating and electing our Delegates to the 2020 New York State United Teachers Representative Assembly (RA). The RA will take place Friday-Saturday, May 1-2, in Albany. The RA is a governance event where delegates from NYSUT locals determine the priorities of NYSUT for the coming year. The RA will adjourn at about 6 pm on Saturday.

Delegates must be able to commit to attending the entire RA.

Election procedures:

All UCATS members are eligible to make nominations, and to be nominated themselves, for Delegate positions.
►There are 8 Delegate positions available. If there are more than 8 nominees, the 8 nominees with the most votes will be Delegates and the remaining nominees will be registered for the RA as Alternate Delegates. In the event a Delegate withdraws prior to the RA, the next Alternate Delegate with the most votes will be offered the vacant Delegate position.
►Nominations will be accepted at the meeting and prior to the meeting.
