WHAT IS GENERAL ASSEMBLY?
The TSEU General Assembly is a statewide meeting of elected delegates and other TSEU members and families.It is held every even-numbered year. The General Assembly considers and adopts the broad strategic plans that guide decision-making in TSEU for the next two years. These plans are generally contained within the Organizing Program and Political Program. Specific legislative goals for the upcoming session of the Texas Legislature are also contained in the Political Program. The General Assembly also makes decisions and adopts positions on various specific questions, including election of TSEU candidates for the ERS and TRS boards of trustees.
All members present at the General Assembly can participate in debates, discussions, and meetings. The final vote on issues is restricted to elected delegates. The General Assembly marks the beginning of the mobilization campaign to win specific victories. The enthusiasm and determination that begins with General Assembly allows members to go back out to our cities and towns ready to do the organizing and mobilizing it takes to win.
Finally, the General Assembly is the best opportunity for TSEU members from across the state to meet one another, renew friendships, and enjoy the companionship of fellow TSEU members and families.
