SEIU 521 Executive Board Officers, Delegates & Trustees

SEIU 521 is a democratically-run, member-driven organization. At the head of our member-driven governance is our union’s Executive Board. Every three years members elect the officers, executive board delegates and trustees from among their fellow union members. Guided by SEIU International Constitution & Bylaws, they make decisions about our union’s budget, policies, and other organizational issues. The officers, delegates, and trustees are active union members representing every division in our union.

SEIU 521 represents 40,000 county, city, and non-profit workers in 17 counties grouped into five regions:

  • Region 1: San Mateo & Santa Clara Counties
  • Region 2: Santa Cruz, Monterey, San Benito Counties
  • Region 3: Stanislaus, Tuolumne, Mariposa, Mono, Alpine, Merced Counties
  • Region 4: Madera & Fresno Counties
  • Region 5: Tulare, Kings, Kern, Inyo Counties

In addition, Family Child Care Providers are joining our union in all these regions, as well as in Alameda County.

From January 7-17, 2019, SEIU 521 members voted to choose our Localwide Officers, Executive Board Delegates, and Trustees for the 2019-2022 term of office, as well as to amend the SEIU 521 Bylaws. (There were no changes to the dues structure.)
