Earlier this month, former Zone 1 Director BJ Colvin was elected as our new State Treasurer.
“I am excited to continue to serve PSE’s 30,000 members from this new role,” said Colvin. “I believe that 2017 will be a great year for our union, as we work together to make a difference for working families in our state.”
Per PSE’s 2016-17 Bylaws, here are the duties and responsibilities of the State Treasurer:
It shall be the responsibility of the treasurer to oversee the management of, and report on, PSE ‘s finances to the Board of Directors and general membership. The treasurer shall monitor the budget and regularly review financial transactions to ensure compliance with all appropriate policies, procedures, laws, and regulations. The Financial Review Committee, under the direction of the treasurer who serves as the chair, shall advise and assist the Executive Director in formulating sound, prudent financial plans, controls, and funding priorities to be presented to the Board of Directors for approval.
The election comes at an exciting time for Colvin and his wife Sharis, who recently welcomed their first child Willow into the PSE family.
The Zone 1 Director election for BJ’s replacement is scheduled for December 1st at 6:00pm at the Kennewick Red Lion Columbia Center.
After the election, there will be a learning tour meeting with PSE Education and Training Manager Tom Krabbenhoft. He will be there to talk with the new Zone Director and hear feedback from the Zone 1 Members about what education and training they would like PSE to have in the future.
