Regional Convention

Democracy is one of the underlying and fundamental principles of the union. Conventions are gatherings of delegates who represent the interest of the members of the union.  At Conventions, delegates make decisions on a variety of issues and set the path for the union’s future actions.

Conventions are an opportunity for members from across the country to meet and reflect on the union’s accomplishments, decide on changes that may be needed and continue the work of building a strong national union.

At Conventions:

  • Political leaders are elected.
  • The budget is reviewed and approved and the dues rate set.
  • Amendments to the Constitution are made.
  • Policy papers (reports on issues facing the union and the union’s plan for addressing those issues) are discussed, possibly amended and approved.
  • Resolutions (written recommendations submitted by Locals, Components, regional convention and national conferences) are debated and voted on.
