45th Annual NWSEO National Convention
~~IMPORTANT OFFICIAL NOTICE OF ELECTIONS~~
Dear NWSEO Member,
This letter is your notification of Steward, Vice Steward, Convention Delegate, Alternate Delegate and Regional Officer nomination and election procedures for 2020. It also includes information about our 45th Annual NWSEO National Convention. NWSEO will post this letter on our website: http://nwseo.org/convention.php.
You are invited to attend the 2020 NWSEO National Convention at Caesars Palace Las Vegas on October 12-13, 2020 (Monday-Tuesday event). Caesars Palace Las Vegas is located at 3570 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Las Vegas, NV 89109. As famous as Las Vegas itself, Caesars Palace is the best-known casino resort in the world.
All NWSEO members are invited to attend the convention and attendance is free. Transportation, lodging, and most meals are at your own expense. NWSEO will provide lunch on both days of the convention and a banquet dinner on Monday evening, October 12. All members are welcome to attend our open meetings that generally begin at 8:00 am and end around 5:00 pm each day. Tentative convention agenda topics are included at the end of this letter.
Hotel Reservations: If you plan to attend the convention, you are responsible for making your own hotel reservations. NWSEO has negotiated the room rate based on the Fiscal Year 2020 per diem rate (plus resort fee and taxes). The Fiscal Year 2020 per diem rate for Las Vegas is currently $102/night. In addition to the daily cost of each room, there is a daily Resort Fee of $45 per night, single or double occupancy. This fee includes unlimited local phone calls, two guest admissions per day to the Fitness Center and in-room internet access for 2 devices. Room reservations must be made by September 11, 2020.
Each NWSEO Branch is required to elect a delegate and an alternate delegate to the convention. A NWSEO Branch refers to a recognized group of active members in good standing within a facility of the National Weather Service (NWS), the National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS), NOAA Office of General Counsel, Aircraft Operations Center (AOC) and Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML).
Each delegate votes on all matters that come before the convention, with one vote for each NWSEO member in the Branch(es) which that delegate represents. If an elected delegate is not present at the convention for a vote, then the alternate delegate may cast the delegated votes.
You do not have to be elected as a delegate or an alternate delegate to attend the convention. Any member may attend, participate in discussions, and vote. If you attend the convention and are not a delegate, you may cast your own vote, and the delegate elected for your Branch may not cast a vote on your behalf for your branch.
