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.
