A New Business Item
Download the New Business Item form here. (PDF form to submit or print)
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 March 31, 2017 to be included in the DA Workbook.
A Bylaws Amendment
Download the Bylaws Amendment form here. (PDF form to submit or print)
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 21, 2017.
Download the Resolution form here. (PDF form to submit or print)
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 March 31, 2017 to be included in the DA Workbook.
A Standing or Procedural Rule
Download the Standing or Procedural Rule form here. (PDF form to submit or print)
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 21, 2017 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.
