UEA House of Delegates
The 2013 UEA House of Delegates was held May 11 at Elk Ridge Middle School in South Jordan.
At the annual House of Delegates, elected representatives from each of the state’s local associations meet to receive reports on the status of the Association, discuss and adopt the UEA Legislative Program and budget, and discuss and adopt policies to govern the Association. Nearly 300 delegates and guests participated in the 2013 House.
About the House of Delegates
Each year, the UEA convenes a House of Delegates to conduct Association business. According to the UEA Constitution (Article IV), the “House of Delegates is the legislative body of the Utah Education Association and may determine the policies to be carried out by the Board of Directors.” The UEA bylaws say the House of Delegates meets annually to “receive reports on the status of the Association, discuss and adopt the UEA Legislative Program and the UEA Budget, and adopt policies governing the Association.” The House consists of the UEA Board of Directors and elected delegates representing each local association, each UniServ, UEA retired members and the UEA student program. Each attending delegate is entitled to one vote.
