Proposed New Business, Amendments and Resolution Forms
(MAC users: These forms must be opened in Adobe Reader -- Not PREVIEW -- for you to save data to the form and submit properly. Please make sure you are using Adobe Reader.)
A New Business Item
New Business Items typically call for a specific action. For instance, "The NSEA shall lobby the Legislature for an increase in teacher salaries."
New Business Items are due to the NSEA office by April 5, 2013 to be included in the DA Workbook.
A Bylaws Amendment would change the governing documents of the Association. For example, a particular section of the Bylaws could be altered to add additional duties to the job description of the president. Bylaws Amendments must be submitted in writing by March 20, 2013.
A Resolution is a statement of belief. For example: "The NSEA believes that all students should have a safe environment in which to learn." Delegates annually consider a lengthy series of Resolutions, many of which carry over from year to year. Resolutions are due in the NSEA office no later than April 5, 2013 to be included in the DA Workbook.
A Standing or Procedural Rule
Such rules govern how the DA will operate. For example, a local may want the NSEA to furnish a pen and notebook for each delegate. Such proposals submitted by March 20, 2013 and require a majority vote of delegates for approval. If submitted at the Delegate Assembly, the same proposal would require a two-thirds majority vote for approval.
