Other URA Nominations Taking Place…

At the October 15 Membership Meeting, we will also nominate candidates for 10 delegate seats who will represent URA at the AFT New Jersey (“AFTNJ”) Delegate Assembly. AFTNJ is our union’s state‐wide federation, uniting 30,000 members from PreK‐12 schools and higher education institutions across the state. AFTNJ delegates convene four times a year to manage the affairs of the organization, debate policy and promote educational excellence and access.

Many of these meetings take place on the Rutgers‐New Brunswick campus. Each spring, AFTNJ hosts either a Legislative conference or the biennial Convention, or both. AFTNJ is our voice for legislative, policy and professional issues as they relate to administrative and professional staff in higher education.
