Our 2021 SEIU-West Convention is fast approaching. In order to prepare for this Convention, our planning involves both general elections for the positions of President, Treasurer and one (1) Trustee; as well, we will be holding at least five (5) caucus elections for Member at Large positions on the Executive Board.
To facilitate our elections processes, we are looking for three (3) interested members who would be willing to serve on our Elections Committee. The Elections Committee has a staff resource, Karman Kawchuk – Research Coordinator and an ex-officio member, Neil Colmin, our Vice-President. Some of the duties of the Elections Committee include: approval & distribution of candidate campaign material, compiling guidelines for both general/caucus elections, review of any nomination/election challenges, recording names and number of ballots cast for each candidate, working with the Parliamentarian, and providing a final report to the Executive Board. Further information will be provided at the first committee meeting.
If you are interested in serving on the Elections Committee and you will not be running for a position at Convention, please send an email expressing your interest with your name, workplace and cell number to [email protected] before March 1, 2021.
