Be A Delegate to NSEA Delegate Assembly

Local Delegates

Deadline to File: Set by each Local Association
Secret ballot elections held at the local association level, with delegate names reported to NSEA by March 24
Delegates from local associations with 26 or more members must be elected by secret ballot, according to federal statute. Presidents from those associations will be notified of the number of delegate representatives they may elect, based on their local association membership.

For instance, all local associations in NSEA’s Capitol District with fewer than 26 members will vote on a common set of candidates for delegates to DA. The cluster delegate breakdown is:

Capitol District: 7 openings
Elkhorn District: 9 openings
Metro District: 1 opening
Panhandle District: 6 openings
Sandhills District: 8 openings
Tri-Valley District: 11 openings
