TSTA House of Delegates Elections

The 2013 State House of Delegates (HoD) will be in Houston, TX, April 12-13, 2013. Delegates to the TSTA State House of Delegates and the TSTA Regional Houses of Delegates are elected. The allocation of delegates elected from each local association is based on membership totals as of January 15 each year. TSTA provides allocation information to local presidents and posts allocation information on this website as soon as possible after January 15.

Please review the appropriate State and Regional Allocation Lists to determine the total number of delegates your local association may send to the State HoD and your Regional HoD (and whether some of your delegates are required to be ethnic minority or supervisory members). These totals must be included on the delegate election forms you submit.


Local Delegate Elections for the State HoD

The President of your local association must submit the results of your local delegate elections to TSTA Headquarters by March 15, 2013, 5:00 p.m., CDT, on the appropriate TSTA HoD Election Forms. These include:

• Local Alternate Election Report
• Multiple entries form (for additional delegates/alternates page 2 to end)
