Delegate Nominations Now Open Until February 6
The 2020 SEIU International Convention will be a historic gathering of America’s service workforce as we enter into the 2020 National Presidential Race. SEIU members from across the country will congregate in Chicago, Illinois to debate and vote on the convention resolutions that will guide our Union’s work over the next 4 years. As a convention delegate, you will have the opportunity to represent the interest of the more than 50,000 SEIU Local 521 members across the state of California.
Every elected delegate will be expected to help implement the resolutions adopted at the 2020 SEIU International Convention.
All members of SEIU Local 521 who have been members of Local 521 in good standing, with no lapse in dues for a total of two years are eligible for nomination and election to be a delegate to the Convention in Chicago from April 23 to April 26, 2020.
Nominations now open until February 6, 2020.
Delegate Elections will take place from February 8 to February 19, 2020.

Each nominee must obtain signatures from Local 521 members in good standing (from any 521 chapter) to support their nomination. Signature spaces are on the back of this flyer. Only full members in good standing may sign a petition. *We encourage you to get more signatures than required, should one or more of your signatures be invalid. Although the petitions can be signed by any 521 members, the number of signatures required of you is dependent on the size of your chapter. To confirm your chapter’s size, go to www.seiu521.org/chaptersize.
- Small chapters (1 – 199 members); Retired members: 10 signatures or half the chapter membership, whichever is smaller.
- Medium chapters (200 – 1,999 members): 20 signatures.
- Large chapters (2,000 or more members): 30 signatures.
