August 14, 2017

Dear CSEA Members:


It’s a new school year!  Welcome back!

I have thought a lot about what I wanted to share with you on this first official week back to school.  Our union has experienced many changes over the past 18 months.  Brothers and sisters who previously held officer positions (executive board) for many years are now retired or retiring.  We are at the precipice of a whole new executive board for our union.  


For those of you who do not yet know, and for new members recently hired, our recent President, Alex Sutton, retired on June 9.  Alex’s resignation automatically took me out of the Vice President role and placed me into the role of the President until the end of this term. Some of you may recall that I was the replacing Vice President for Mike Payne who retired last December.  


I am happy to be starting this year as your CSEA President and honored to serve in this way.  It's important to note, that this is an election year for our executive board positions.  Elections for terms coming to an end on the executive board will be held this fall and the newly elected executive board would begin their duties on January 1.


Over the next month, please consider your interest in fulfilling a role or nominating someone to an executive board position within our excellent and growing union.  The following are the executive board officer positions open for nominations.


President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, and Sergeant at Arms


In addition, there are several committees which need committed people to serve.  The more brothers and sisters who can serve in these vital roles, the less time any one member will need to serve.  You can be involved as much, or as little as you want.  There are strength in numbers and together we can continue to have an even stronger union!

Committees to consider:



Benefits, Job Steward, Constitution and Bylaws, Newsletter to assist current leaders, scholarship, Site Reps, Sunshine, Unity/Community, Victory Club, and Classified Employees Communications Counsel (CECC)


We will be discussing all of these opportunities at or next meeting.
  


Our conference delegates will also be updating you on the results of the resolutions that were accepted, defeated and/or withdrawn. The most important of these resolutions is an update on the increase to union dues.

As a reminder, our union meetings are held the 2nd Tuesday of every month (except for this August).  A reminder email will be sent shortly, confirming the dates, time, and location, once I am able to confirm with the executive board and site(s).  The executive board will work with our communications officer to provide news on upcoming events and provide any vital information you may need.


I look forward to seeing you all at our first Chapter meeting of 2017-2018.


Always at your service,

Nancy Bronzini, CSEA President, Chapter 155
