At its Sept. 12, 2020 meeting, the PSEA Board of Directors voted to move the Dec. 4-5, 2020 House of Delegates to a virtual format. This difficult decision was necessitated by the continuing concerns related to the spread of COVID-19 and restrictions on in-person gatherings.
While the virtual format will require a limited agenda, the Board is working to provide a meaningful opportunity for delegates to share their views about the direction of PSEA. Delegates will be able to nominate candidates and subsequently vote to fill the offices of PSEA Vice President, NEA Director, NEA Alternate Director, and PSEA Pension Plan Director.
In the coming weeks, local presidents and delegates will receive additional information about the technology, procedures, and agenda for the House.
