Delegate selection underway for 2020 Rep. Convention

Plans are underway for the 2020 Education Minnesota Representative Convention, taking place April 24-25 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Bloomington. Represent your colleagues on issues that affect all educators by seeking a post as a delegate or alternate.

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 will also elect statewide and regional members to Education Minnesota’s Governing Board, as well as a National Education Association Director.

March 20 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. Delegates are chosen by open nominations and secret ballot. Interested members should contact their local president for details on how to participate.

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.
