2023 RA promises to be chock full

NYSUT Representative Assembly 2023 Albany Emblem

YSUT delegates from across New York are gearing up for the statewide union’s annual convention. And they’ll be met with a packed schedule of elections, resolutions and events both before and after the conference.

The 2023 Representative Assembly will be held April 28–29 in Albany. Delegates will elect NYSUT officers, members of the NYSUT Board of Directors, an NEA Director and Alternate NEA Director, and state delegates to the AFT Convention.

The convention will kick off with an expanded Local and Retiree Council Presidents Conference, held April 27–28. RA delegates will help set the union agenda for the next year as they debate more than 30 resolutions on pre-K through postgraduate education, legislation, health care, organizing and retirement.

Delegates will also consider one amendment to the NYSUT Constitution, see page 24.

The annual RA is also a time to recognize the hard work and dedication of NYSUT members. RA delegates will honor the winners of several NYSUT awards including “Not For Ourselves Alone”: The Sandy Feldman Outstanding Leadership Award, the Ken Kurzweil Social Justice Recognition Award and the NYSUT Life Line Honor Roll. Winners of the union’s constituency awards and honors for members’ and locals’ community service and other outreach will also be recognized.

New this year, Sunday after the RA the union will host a special community event, the inaugural NYSUT Runs New York Family 5K. Delegates and members around the region are invited to join NYSUT families on a beautiful walk/run course along the Hudson River. Proceeds will benefit the Albany Fund for Education.
