|Member of the Year Award Nominations
The purpose of the CSEA Member of the Year Program is to recognize the commitment and dedication of classified employees to the students of California, community involvement, and activism in our fine union.
Nominees must be an active member in good standing. You will be asked to provide job-related skills, examples of outstanding character, community involvement, and to what extent they are active in the chapter. For example, how much do they volunteer to support the activities of the local chapter, etc.
The Member of Year Award Nomination forms are accepted January 1 - April 1. (Form available Jan. 1, 2015)
The Awards Committee has designed a simplified nomination form which makes it easier to write why you believe the nominee deserves the recognition.
Remember to fully describe your nominee’s outstanding qualities. Refer to the following example of how critical full explanations can be in awarding points.
Here is a sample of a winning nomination:
Right: “I wish to nominate Joe Member because there is no more committed classified employee and union activist in our chapter. He goes the extra mile to not only ensure that classrooms are regularly cleaned and supplies stocked, but also sets up the meeting room for our chapter every month in the same efficient manner. Those things needing immediate attention for safety reasons are brought to the appropriate person for quick response. He mentors at risk students who might pursue a career in the maintenance and operations field by allowing them to shadow him| and learn skills. They know he cares by his compassionate attitude and how he never turns away students who want to talk to him.”
Wrong: “Joe Member is a really hard worker and deserves recognition.”
