Plans are underway for the 2023 Education Minnesota Representative Convention, taking place April 28-29 at the DoubleTree by Hilton – Minneapolis South. Represent your colleagues on issues that affect all educators by seeking a post as a delegate or alternate. The Representative Convention is our highest governing body, with more than 600 elected delegates meeting annually to set policy for the union.
Major business for delegates includes acting on changes to the union’s constitution and bylaws and considering any action items or proposed amendments to the legislative positions and the statements of principle. This year, delegates to the convention will also elect governing board members in eight at-large zones, two education support professional governing board members, a higher education/state affiliate member and an NEA Director.
March 24 is the deadline for local presidents to inform Education Minnesota of those who will be delegates and alternates to the RC. The number of delegates allocated to each local and statewide affiliate is determined by the number of members and can be found in the Representative Convention section of our website in the Delegate Allocation Report. Delegates are chosen by open nominations and secret ballot. Interested members should contact their local president for details on how to participate.
For this event, Education Minnesota provides one standard hotel room for one night for each local sending at least one delegate and one round-trip mileage reimbursement per delegate. Local presidents have details on the financial arrangements and hotel reservations.
