HSA re-opens nominations for Region 6 Director

January 27 deadline has passed with no nominations

HSA urges all members to consider running for this important position

HSA is once again calling for nominations for the position of Regional Director for Region 6 after nominations closed on January 27th with no candidates coming forward.

Ernie Hilland who has served as the Region 6 Director since 2004 is not seeking re-election. All Region 6 members are encouraged to consider running for this important position that allows members to contribute to the overall policy direction of the union and to represent the needs and interests of other HSA members.

Regional Directors meet every month and take an active leadership role in the union's committees. They are reimbursed for the time they spend in official meetings at their own regular rate of pay. Part-time and casual members are reimbursed as if they were at work during the meetings they attend.

To be eligible, members must be employed in a Chapter and have been a member in good standing for one year. Candidates must be nominated in writing by at least two HSA members.

Nominations must be received in the HSA office no later than Tuesday, February 21, 2006.
