Become A PAT Leader: Run for Office

Nominations will open at the November 30th PAT Representative Assembly (PAT RA) for election to several PAT positions.  These include PAT Executive Board Directors (4 positions), PAT Delegates to the Oregon Education Association Representative Assembly, and PAT Delegates to the National Education Association Representative Assembly.

Any active PAT member may run for any of these positions.  Fair Share Fee Payers are not eligible to run for any elected union office.
