First Day!

I hope you all had a successful first day back!  I wanted to touch base about the site rep. process.  Please read on. 


The power of YCTA to represent our unit depends upon an active and involved membership.  Our Site Reps make the connections to build a more involved membership.  Site reps. are a vital link in the communication process between our members and the YCTA/CTA board.  We have made great progress in our association through the active involvement of our members.  Please consider representing your site. 


Our first YCTA Rep Council meeting will be on Monday, August 29th.  We begin to gather at 3:30 PM and meet from 3:45 – 5:15 PM.  We need to elect Site Reps before this meeting. 


1.     Each site is entitled to 1 representative per 10 members. (I have included the numbers of allocated reps per site at the bottom of this post.)   If the number of declared candidates is equal to or less than the site’s allocation of representatives, no election needs to take place.  Those interested in being part of the site representation just need to declare their interest and email their site to declare their interest, and come to the 8/29 meeting.  (If there are more candidates than the allocated number, contact me for directions on conducting elections. Also, see attachment for allotted reps per site.) 

  • Site Reps attend the ten Rep Council meetings/yr and serve as the YCTA liaisons at their sites.  At the first Rep Council meeting we will present for approval a plan for an improved, interactive site representation and a single lead site rep.  It is our goal to empower our reps and make our meetings more productive and interactive.   We will offer additional trainings for our site reps this year. 
  • You may consider the CTA Emerging Leadership Conference – Friday, Sept. 30 4pm – Sun. Oct. 2., 11:30am.  Please let me know if you are interested in attending.  I went last year, and it is very inspirational, informational, and motivating.
