  Private Sector Board of Directors’ seats election
Due to the increase in membership in the CSEA Private Sector, there are now three (3) seats on the Board. By the constitution, the Private Sector Executive Committee Chair (Deborah Hanna) is an automatic Board member by virtue of being Chair.
Also, by the constitution, any additional Private Sector Board seats cannot be from the same employer. Thus, the two additional seats will
be elected from the Private Sector membership, except for HRI, because that is where the Chair is employed.
A mid-October mailing to all Private Sector Local Presidents included items for posting -- the Notice of Election and the Election Schedule. If you wish to run for this Board Seat, each Private Sector Local President has candidate applications available for you. You may also request a candidate application
from your CSEA Region office or CSEA Headquarters via the Legal Department at 1-800-342-4146, ext. 1447 or directly at 518-257-1447.
You may also direct any questions regarding the election process to the Legal Department.
