More than 200 delegates, elected by their peers in each of the state’s local associations, participated in the 2018 House, along with 35 guests.
In addition, UEA President Heidi Matthews honored departing UEA Executive Director Lisa Nentl-Bloom who recently announced she has accepted a new position. She also recognized departing NEA State Director Ed Sanderson and UEA Board members Stuart Bailey (High Desert), Angelique Morrill (Wasatch) and Amy Barton (Council of Local Presidents) who are participating in their last House of Delegates in their positions.
About the House of Delegates
Each year, the UEA convenes a House of Delegates to conduct Association business. According to the UEA Constitution (Article IV), the “House of Delegates is the legislative body of the Utah Education Association and may determine the policies to be carried out by the Board of Directors.” The UEA Bylaws say the House of Delegates meets annually to “receive reports on the status of the Association, discuss and adopt the UEA Legislative Program and the UEA Budget, and adopt policies governing the Association.” The House consists of the UEA Board of Directors and elected delegates representing each local association, each UniServ, UEA retired members and the UEA student program. Each attending delegate is entitled to one vote.
