As this edition was going to press, CSEA had recently held its 111th Annual Delegates Meeting.
The meeting, which was held virtually, focused on educating members.
Workshops focused on training sessions that followed three distinct leadership/activist tracks: new officers ABCs workshops, leadership workshops and activist/advocate Workshops.
The workshops were not only designed to educate members, but to urge them to share information, mentor and network with one another to make all CSEA activists into stronger leaders.
Virtual attendees also heard inspiring addresses from speakers that included U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Gov. Kathy Hochul, AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler, AFSCME International President Lee Saunders, AFSCME International Secretary/Treasurer Elissa McBride and A. Philip Randolph Institute President Clayola Brown.
Also included in the meeting were the presentations to CSEA activists of the union’s Danny Donohue Leadership Awards, Nadra Floyd Memorial and Membership Achievement Awards.
Detailed coverage of the Annual Delegates Meeting will be included in the November edition.
