NEASO is calling for nominations for delegates to the 2016 National Staff Organization (NSO) Representative Assembly (RA). The NSO RA will meet on June 9 and 10, 2017 in Atlanta, GA.
The NSO RA is an annual gathering of voting representatives from NSO’s state affiliates to elect officers, share information and set priorities for the coming year. As a delegate, you will have the opportunity to meet other NSO members from across the country, weigh in on pressing union issues, and learn more about the NSO.
All NEASO members in good standing are eligible to be nominated for and elected to the RA delegation.
The RA delegation will also include NEASO President Susan Nogan, HQ-Vice President Jay Hunter, MB-Vice President Zachary Reid, Secretary Ernestine Ussery, and Treasurer Timothy Reed, each of whom was elected to serve as both NEASO Officer and NSO delegate. NEASO members will elect the remainder of the delegates by a secret ballot election on Thursday, May 4, 2017.
