  • Hold a worksite meeting to nominate and elect building representatives for your worksite. Also, you can and should have several reps per worksite. Remember, elections should be held anonymously as a paper ballot (or if you do an electronic google form election include LCEA Board members as collaborators on the form). A respected member who is not a nominee must count the ballots. We are scheduling leadership/Build Rep. trainings this summer for all reps & members interested in getting more involved. You must notify LCEA leadership of the official results by May 6th.
