UEA House of Delegates
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.
Documents that are a result of business conducted at the House of Delegates include:
- Governing Documents (Constitution and Bylaws)
- Standing Rules
- Legislative Program
New Business Items are also presented to the House for consideration.
Upcoming House of Delegates
The 2022 UEA House of Delegates will be held on Saturday, April 30, 2022. (Location TBD)
SUBMIT AN ITEM TO THE HOUSE
Bills amending the UEA Constitution must be received at the UEA Headquarters Office 30 days before the House convenes. Proposed constitutional amendments cannot be amended after the submission due date, but can be amended in future years. Proposed amendments to the resolutions should be submitted by this deadline for consideration by the Rules and Resolutions Committee and possible inclusion in the Committee’s report.
Other bills, amendments, and new business items should be submitted by this deadline if the sponsor wants them to be published in the delegate program materials.
[Deadline for 2022 is 5 p.m. on Thursday, March 31, 2022.]
During the time between the deadline for submitting matters to the Rules and Resolutions Committee and the House, the Rules and Resolutions Committee studies the proposals, holds hearings, and prepares the proposed documents in proper form for publication in the official program and distribution to the delegates prior to the House.
New business items, bills amending the Bylaws or Standing Rules, amendments to the legislative program, amendments to the budget, and amendments to the resolutions may be submitted to the Rules and Resolutions Committee at the Open Hearing held prior to the annual House. Items not submitted at the Open Hearing or earlier require a two-thirds vote of the House for consideration.
The Open Hearing is scheduled for Friday, April 22, 2022 at 5:30 p.m., via Zoom.
Details to follow.
Anticipated posting date: Week of April 4, 2022.
