Retired delegate nomination forms can be found in the Fall and Winter Advocate magazine, or click on the following link for a printable form that may be used to make all nominations (Retired officer or delegate): http://www.tsta.org/sites/default/files/TSTA-Rnominationforms.pdf.

Electronic ballots will be sent in early February to all TSTA-Retired members with active email addresses on file, and paper ballots will be mailed to all others. Both paper and electronic ballots will be due March 5, 2015. We strongly suggest contacting TSTA-R@tsta.org by January 31st to ensure any updates to your address information can be made prior to preparation of the ballot mailings.

Both TSTA-R officer terms are now three (3) years each. Individuals elected will serve from July 15, 2015, through July 14, 2018.

TSTA-Retired delegates to the state convention will be allocated by TSTA in a ratio of one (1) delegate for each seventy-five (75) members, or major fraction thereof, as of January 15, 2015. In order to run for a TSTA-R state convention delegate position, the candidate must be a member of both TSTA-R & NEA-R.

TSTA-R/NEA-R delegates to the national Representative Assembly are allocated by NEA in a ratio of one (1) delegate for the first 50 TSTA-R/NEA-R members, and one (1) additional delegate for each 1,000 TSTA-R/NEA-R members thereafter. The TSTA-R President is automatically a delegate, as provided by the TSTA-R Bylaws.

SPECIAL NOTE: A member who was an NEA Active Life member while teaching, but is now retired, has the option of seeking nomination as a Category 2 State At-Large delegate rather than a Retired delegate. Anyone eligible may file in only one election.
