2020 APA Election Information

The APA Nominations and Elections Committee is appointed each year in January as required by the Constitution and Bylaws.  The committee will determine the timeline and dates of the election and communicate information to the membership including how many positions and what type are open and explain the nominations and elections process.

Since the APA is part of the Michigan Education Association and the National Education Association, there are duties associated with these affiliates which include evening and weekend events including the Representative Assemblies and other appropriate meetings to keep the APA informed of actions by these bodies.

During our March election, there was a tie for one MEA/NEA/ RA Delegate seat. MEA Bylaws require our runoff election to be completed by June 1, 2020.

This communication serves as notice of the runoff election for One (1) full term three-year position for MEA/NEA Representative Assembly Delegate ending 2023.

A paper-based ballot option is available by contacting the Runoff Elections Chair.
