Nominations open for Regional Director positions in Region 1, 3, 5, 7 & 9

This year, Regional Director elections will take place in Regions 1, 3, 5, 7, & 9.  All HSA members in these regions are encouraged to put their name forward for these important positions.

Directors meet, on average, every six weeks and take an active leadership role in representing the union.  They are reimbursed for the time they spend in official meetings at their own regular rate of pay.  Part-time and casual members are reimbursed as if they were at work during the meetings they attend.

To be eligible, members must be employed in a chapter and have been a member in good standing for one year.  Candidates must be nominated in writing by two members.

This year, elections will be held in Regions 1, 3, 5, 7, & 9.  Nominations must be received by the HSA office no later than Thursday, February 8, 2007.

This is an excellent opportunity for members to contribute to the future direction of the union and to represent the interests of other HSA members.
