The Association Representatives
These elected members represent the members’ site/interests at their monthly PGCEA Representative Council meetings. Association Representatives are the key decision makers and policy-setting bodies of the local affiliate. The faculty elects the Association Representatives – each site is entitled to one (1) representative for every twenty-five (25) members or fraction thereof. For example, if your site has twenty-six (26) members, the site is entitled to two (2) representatives. If your school has more than one Association Representative, a chairperson shall be designated by the school delegation (election).
For more detailed information, see the Association Representative Responsibilities. Generally, the Faculty Advisory Council (FAC) Chair also serves as the Faculty Representative Chair.
Faculty Advisory Council
Elected by the faculty before September 15 each year, the Faculty Advisory Council (FAC) is a contractually-mandated, school-based committee that serves to voice concerns of the general membership to the Principal. When needed, it acts as an interface between rank-and-file members and the Principal to address issues of concern to the school community, as a whole. Regardless of the size of the worksite, the FAC shall have an absolute minimum of five (5) members, at the rate of one for every ten (10) unit members or portion thereof.
The FAC’s role is to relay Unit 1 members’ legitimate concerns and offer solutions to problems as they arise in a reasoned and non-adversarial manner. Meetings occur at the building/site level. For more information, see below FAC Guidelines available below.
