Election Background Information
Article 7.06 (vii) states that the role of the NEB “shall be to see to it that the affairs and business of the Union are being properly conducted in accordance with the Constitution.”  The role of the NEB is to provide oversight and Governance and to ensure that the Model outlined by the Constitution and Policies is being implemented. It is not the role of the NEB to do this work themselves.  

The National Executive Board shall be the highest authority in the Union between meetings. The purpose of the National Executive Board is actually to ensure that this Constitution is implemented. The NEB members have a direct role in bringing the Constitution to life. 


The National Board does not tell the Union what to do. That topic doesn’t even come up at the National Board Meetings.  The NEB works on behalf of the members and carries out the duties that are outlined under “National Executive Board” in the Constitution.
