House of Delegates
Anyone can download the public delegates list, which contains only the name, school and role information for each delegate. In order to facilitate cooperation among delegates, a directory that includes personal contact information is available in a password-protected area accessible only to other delegates within our MemberLink Portal. If a delegate wishes to withhold some of their contact information, they can fill out the form electronically inside the MemberLink Portal or else download the Delegates Directory Opt-Out Form and return it to the union for a correction to the directory.
