Voluntary participation in the work of the ETA by all members is crucial to our ongoing success. Participation takes on a variety of forms. An essential function of a democratic process is elections and the work performed by the Elections Committee. While the time commitment of this committee is limited the importance is significant for the successful governing of our union.
You’ll note that the positions are filled by appointment of the President with the approval of the Board. This survey is intended to provide members a means to make their interest known in an effort to continue to broaden the participation rate of rank-and-file members with the operation of their union.
The Chair of the Elections Committee is Holly Yee. Any specific questions you have can be directed to Holly or Richard Johnson, ETA President.
Thank you in advance for considering this work.
