MSEA 2016 Delegate Assembly

VotingCards2Members from around the state attended MSEA's annual Delegate Assembly held in Baxter MN on April 22-23.  Delegates heard reports from the President and Executive Director, reviewed the 2016-17 Budget, received information on recreating the Legislative Committee, including searching for a new legislative chair, voted on resolutions and filled three positions on the MSEA Board of Directors.  Of course there was plenty of time for networking and socializing as well.


And while we're always glad to see so many familiar faces, we were equally pleased to meet some new friends this year - a good sign that members are interested in making their voices heard and wanting to help shape MSEA into a union that best serves us all!  Click here to view DA photos, elections and award recipients.
