Albany Welcome's NYSUT Delegates

To Their 47th Annual

Representative Assembly! 

NYSUT is a statewide federation of more than 1,200 local unions representing more than 680,000 members who work in, or are retired from, New York's schools, colleges, and healthcare facilities. We are classroom teachers, college and university faculty and professional staff, school bus drivers, custodians, secretaries, cafeteria workers, teacher assistants and aides, nurses and healthcare technicians.

The RA is the union's highest policy-making body.  Members make their voices heard by electing local delegates who represent them at NYSUT's annual convention -- the Representative Assembly. NYSUT delegates shape the future of the organization by debating and voting on proposed amendments to the Constitution and Bylaws, proposed resolutions and other business brought before the Representative Assembly according to NYSUT Constitution and Bylaws provisions or policy.

While you are attending the 2019 Representative Assembly in Albany you will have the opportunity to experience an array of eclectic restaurants, distilleries, pubs, trivia competitions, arts/entertainment and much more in downtown. Albany has it all for you to experience!
