Dear RCFA Members,
I want to share some information regarding the upcoming budget vote and elections for open positions.
At the end of this school year, Barbara Ebeling will be retiring as treasurer of the RCFA. Barbara has served as the RCFA treasurer for almost 2 decades. She has agreed to work with the new treasurer over the next year in order to ease the transition.
If you are interested in running for the position to complete the remainder of her term(July1 2014-last day of school 2015), please complete the declaration of intent, have it endorsed by two RCFA members and return it to Jeff Greenberger at the HS by April 30th.
NYSTRS Delegate Special Election
There is an opening for a delegate and an alternate delegate to the NYS Teachers Retirement System
Delegates attend a two-day annual meeting held in November at which a teacher member is elected to the NYSTRS Board. The delegate is responsible for conveying information to the membership. The delegate may also act as a liaison between NYSTRS and the members of their school district/college.
Delegates have two main functions:
- To elect a teacher member to the Retirement Board at the Annual Delegates Meeting; and,
- To serve as a liaison between NYSTRS and the delegate’s co-workers.
The alternate delegate does not attend unless the delegate is unable to attend.
If you are interested in running for the position to complete the remainder of the term(July1 2014-last day of school 2015), please complete the declaration of intent, have it endorsed by two RCFA members and return it to Jeff Greenberger at the HS by April 30th.
The 2014-2015 budget will be available in your buildings after vacation. While NYSUT dues increased $12 and AFT dues increased $.45, the RCFA dues will be decreasing $12.45 to make up the difference. Chris, Gary and I thought it was important that dues remain the same and worked to reduce the budget by $4731 so we could reduce RCFA dues and keep the total dues the same.
The elections will be held on May, 13, the same day we vote on the RCFA budget.
We will be holding meetings about the budget prior to the vote.
If you have any questions about any of the above, please contact me.
Note: See your email for the Declaration of Intent forms.
