NDU Delegate Assembly

2023 Delegate Assembly

The NDU Delegate Assembly is an annual gathering of delegates representing the locals and chapters of our union. Together, our delegates will deliberate and vote on leaders, business items, policy matters, resolutions and amendments to our governing documents.

Additionally, Delegate Assembly is a great opportunity for members across the state to meet,
network and build relationships with their fellow public educators and employees.

Local presidents should have already received an email from President Nick Archuleta announcing the Delegate Assembly. Each local is guaranteed at least one representative. Larger locals are allowed one per 50 members or major fraction thereof.

Please complete and return the Delegate Report Form included with that email ASAP, but not later than April 13. 

Local presidents should make every effort to have their local represented at the Delegate Assembly.

Each local of ND United should have a process in place to determine who will serve as a delegate. If you are interested in being a delegate for your local or chapter, please contact your local president to find out how. If you don’t know who your local president is, contact the NDU office at 701-223-0450 or send an email to
Questions? Please contact Lisa Bennett at or call 701-223-0450.

North Dakota United will be holding elections at the Delegate Assembly for nine delegates to the National Education Association’s Representative Assembly in Orlando, Fla., this July 2-6. 

Election procedures are defined within Article VI of the NDU Bylaws. Since no candidates had submitted a nominating petition signed by 50 active members in good standing by Feb. 15, 2023, there will an election with nominations from the floor or write-in candidates at our Delegate Assembly.

Section 1: Nomination states that: “Nominations from the floor or write-in candidates may be accepted for all offices where no candidate has qualified.”
