On behalf of Executive, this is a call out to all AASUA members for expressions of interest to serve as members of the Negotiations Team and to serve as Lead Negotiator for the next round of bargaining which will commence early in the year 2020. The Negotiations Team shall be composed of members of the Association and chaired by the Lead Negotiator. The Lead Negotiator may not simultaneously be an Officer or Director of the Association.
In accordance with the Association's bylaws, the Executive recommends to Council the members of the Negotiating Team and a member to be appointed as the Lead Negotiator.
In accordance with the Association's Release Time Policy, the Association recognizes the time commitment required to fulfill effectively the duties of the members of the Negotiations Team and as the Lead Negotiator.

If you are interested in serving as a member on the Negotiations Team or as the Lead Negotiator, please submit to me by June 30, 2019 a brief bio along with your background and any other information you feel will assist the Executive in making its recommendation to Council for Council's approval.
