National Border Patrol Council
NOTICE OF SPECIAL MEETING – February 11, 2015
AGENDA: DETERMINE THE NUMBER OF UNION DELEGATES TO THE NBPC AND AFGE NATIONAL CONVENTIONS AND, IF NECESSARY, NOMINATE ADDITIONAL DELEGATES; DETERMINE IF DELEGATES CARRY ALL VOTES; APPROVE EXPENSES FOR DELEGATE ATTENDANCE
Local 2455 will hold a special meeting at 10:00 am on February 22,, 2015 at the Local 2455 Office located at 6828 Springfield Ave, Suite 202 in Laredo, Texas. During this meeting, members will be asked to determine the number of additional delegates, if any, it wants to represent Local 2455. Local 2455’s seven (7) elected Executive Board Officers have already been designated as delegates by virtue of office. If members authorize additional delegates, then nominations for the additional delegates will be accepted and, at a future date to be determined, an election will be held for a secret vote to elect the additional delegates.
Members will also be asked to determine if the selected delegates will carry all of Local 2455’s votes, which if approved would preclude the need for alternate delegates. If members do not approve this proposal, then nominations for alternate delegates will be accepted and, at a future date to be determined, an election will be held for a secret vote to elect additional delegates.
The designated delegates will represent Local 2455 at the NBPC National Convention to be held in April 2015 and at the AFGE National Convention to be held in August 2015.
NOTE: The NBPC and AFGE National Conventions and Caucuses are considered internal union business and official time to travel to and from these events, or to attend the events is not authorized. As a result, delegates attend and travel to/from these events on days off or annual leave.
