SEOEA Representative Assemblies
Semi-annual meetings of the SEOEA Representative Assembly are held every school year in the fall and again in the spring. This year, the fall assembly will be held on Tuesday, November 12, 2013, and the spring assembly will be held on Tuesday, April 8, 2014. Both assemblies will be held at Westview Elementary School in Jackson, with dinner beginning at 5:30 P.M. and the meeting beginning at 6:15 P.M.
The SEOEA Constitution states that the Representative Assembly shall be composed of members of the Executive Committee and of delegates elected from affiliated local associations in the ratio of one representative and one alternate for each 50 SEOEA members, or fraction thereof. SEOEA members elected to the OEA Representative Assembly shall serve as delegates to the SEOEA Representative Assembly by virtue of office as OEA delegates. For example, a local of 101 members is entitled to two OEA delegates (one per fifty members or major fraction thereof) and three SEOEA delegates (one per 50 members or fraction thereof) for a total of five delegates to the SEOEA Representative Assembly. (Please see the accompanying Allocation of Delegates attachment for further clarification of this issue). The names of delegates and alternates must be returned to the Executive Director, postmarked by October 22 (21 days before the fall RA). Delegates and alternates elected in the fall also serve as delegates or alternates in the spring.
Please remember to elect your delegates to SEOEA and OEA in a timely manner. If you need further instructions on conducting your elections, please feel free to contact me – or contact Carol Price at OEA (800-282-1500) for OEA information.
Note that all SEOEA members are welcome to attend the RA, but only those members who you report as delegates or their alternates will be eligible to vote.
Please return your list of delegates to Pamela Smith, Executive Director, 24 Payne St., Jackson, OH 45640, by October 22. It would be helpful if you would list OEA delegates first, then list other delegates and alternates in the order of number of votes received.
We look forward to seeing you at the RA in Jackson on November 1. Please contact me if you have any questions. Phone: 740-286-2371; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
