Leader Resources

Chapter Meeting Notices
PSE will send a meeting notice, either hard copy or electronically, to your members for chapter meetings. Simply complete this before your meeting.

Convention Delegate/Alternate Election Notices
PSE will also send election notices when your chapter elects delegates and alternates to Convention. You may order this meeting notice by filling out the form below or by completing the Convention Delegate/Alternate Nomination & Election Postcard Request Form mailed to each chapter in February which lists the number of eligible delegates for your chapter. 30 business days required to process this request.

New Employee Orientation Video
As you welcome new hires into your chapter, this video is a great resource for educating them on who we are and what we do. Show it at a New Employee Orientation (NEO), and share with new members as a way to welcome them to PSE!

Online Chapter Meetings
As we work to create a 21st century PSE SEIU Local 1948 that develops more leaders and engages more members than ever before, the Online Chapter Meeting template is a resource to help you be successful in your local.

Download Fall 2018 Template

  • Every quarter, a new template will be available on the PSE website with a video message from the PSE State President, Executive Director, and member stories and helpful information from across the state.
  • We hope this template helps you run your meetings more effectively, and is a valuable resource for your chapter’s leadership team.
  • If you have questions or feedback, please contact: training@pseofwa.org

Levy/Bond Assistance Program
Thousands of classified employee jobs rely on the outcome of school district levy or bond elections. As a benefit to members, PSE supports classified employees through the PSE Levy and Bond Program.

Chapters participating in the program receive additional campaign contributions and political assistance from PSE to help pass these vital levies and bonds.

Fill out the request form and it will be sent to the state office for approval.

Chapter Leader Business Cards
As a service to our chapter leaders, PSE provides a small supply of business cards.

Union Leader Training:
Strong chapters require effective leaders. With this in mind, a special series of trainings are conducted annually in the late summer/early fall to help elected chapter leaders more effectively understand and carry out their elected role. PSE is preparing to provide additional training resources to leaders online in 2019.
