ASSOCIATION REPRESENTATIVES AND

THE REPRESENTATIVE ASSEMBLY

Association Representatives (also referred to as Building Representatives) are elected at the building level to serve the needs of the members and represent the association.  Building representatives represent the Association in the building they represent; keep the members informed about Association news and activities through monthly 10 minute meetings; support and advocate for members in their buildings; assist with the annual membership drive; attend regular and special meetings of the Representative Assembly.  Association Representatives attempt to resolve grievances at the building level through collaborative problem solving with the building administrator and, if unable to resolve these issues at the building level, to assist in the formation of formal grievances. 

 

The Representative Assembly (RA) is compromised of the Executive Committee members and the Association Representatives.  Regular meetings of the RA are held monthly, generally on the 1st Wednesday of the month, throughout the school year.  As the legislative body of the Association, the Representative Assembly hears and acts upon reports from the Executive Committee, the Executive Officers, and committees of the Association; passes upon and approves an annual budget and sets membership dues for the Association; employs a staff for the efficient management of the Association and adopts personnel policies governing them; formulates other policies as needed; projects programs of activity; makes appropriations; and establishes special services to be offered by the Association.
