The national elections may be over, but your union still needs your votes! MAPE is holding its final nominations call for the year. Nominations are open for two statewide positions (trustee and Organizing Council), two regional director positions (Regions 5 and 6) and several local positions.

Members must send their nominations for the statewide positions and the regional director offices to MAPE Central on behalf of the Elections Committee (email@example.com).
Local Presidents in locals that are conducting elections are asked to appoint a local nominations committee and a local election committee. Local nomination committees shall seek out and encourage qualified persons to run for local elective positions.
