Today nominations open for your new sub-branch representatives.
Who will be your sub-branch's President this year? Which of you would like to represent your sub-branch as a Councillor? Are you passionate about helping new educators through their first few years of teaching? You could be your sub-branch's New Educator Contact!
It's time to hold a sub-branch meeting and complete the nomination forms. Each nominee needs two nominators, and all nominees and nominators must sign the forms.
This is an excitiing time to be a sub-branch leader. Last year, as part of our new enterprise agreement, we negotiated for 40 hours of paid time each year to be allocated to sub-branch representatives doing their important work in their schools. Where these 40 hours come from will be negotiated as part of your school's EA Implementation Plan.
You can download the nomination forms here, and there are paper versions on the way to 2019 Sub-Branch Presidents as well. Read the election notice here to find out how many Councillors your sub-branch can nominate.
2019 Councillors can attend our February Branch Council, but from March only newly elected Councillors will be able to vote at Council, so make sure you get your forms back ASAP.
Forms must be returned to our office no later than 4.30pm on Friday 28 February.
Please don't hesitate to contact our office if you have any questions about the process.
