Threshold reduced for smaller locals to send delegate to Representative Assembly

MEA delegates passed an amendment to the MEA bylaws Saturday that will allow local associations to send one delegate to the Representative Assembly if they have at least 56 members.

Locals had previously been required to have at least 76 members to seat a delegate.

Farwell Education Association President John Pakledinaz of Region 12 proposed the successful amendment, saying it will provide “locals of all sizes a voice on the future of our organization.”
