Upcoming July CSEA Governance Meetings

Between the extended filing season, the need to avoid in-person meetings, and the virtual delivery of Super Seminar during the months of June, July and August, state and Chapter leaders have been struggling with how to conduct the usual and necessary business of transitioning from one governance year to the next.

The Board calendar is established well before the start of each year. This year’s Annual Meeting, Grand Banquet & Board Installation, leadership training, and Board/Committee meetings were scheduled for July 17-20 in Sacramento. These events need to take place before we can begin the work of a new governance year, and will take place from July 17-20 as originally planned, but will be conducted on the Zoom platform. The schedule follows:

Friday, July 17, 3:00 - 6:00 pm: Annual Meeting, followed by a town hall discussion, installation of the Board of Directors, and finishing with an award ceremony.

Saturday, July 18, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm: State and Chapter leadership training and orientation.

Sunday, July 19, 8:00 am - 5:30 pm: Board and Committee meetings.

Monday, July 20, 8:00 am - 3:00 pm: Board and Committee meetings. 

These meetings will serve as the starting point for committees to begin their work for the year. In order to allow for Board input that may be needed soon after committees begin their work, another online Board meeting has been scheduled for Saturday, August 29, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. At this Board meeting, committee Chairs will provide progress reports and have the opportunity to request Board input or bring any motions for Board approval.

New challenges present new opportunities, and we hope that online Board and Committee meetings mean that more Members can now participate in CSEA state meetings.
