(To: CSUEU Board of Directors;
Cc: CSUEU Staff)

Attached please find some background information on the upcoming SEIU International Convention which will be held in San Juan, PR. Nancy's estimate is that CSUEU will receive 13 delegates total. The officers of a local union are automatic delegates. If CSUEU wishes to send any delegates, they must be funded from our 2008 budget. We are not required to send all our alloted delegates, and it may be very cost-effective to send less than the full 13.

In last weekend's Executive Officer Committee, I suggested that we allow any member to nominate themselves for SEIU delegate and that the election be held during the Board meeting in March, and the electorate consists of the Board of Directors.

I apologize for the scanned PDF; I only received a paper copy.
