How to Elect a School Representative
Election of a School / H&S Representative
School/H&S representatives should be elected every year and existing Representatives are eligible for re-election. A meeting should be called of all INTO members at the start of the new school year.
Northern Office should be informed of the election results by returning the School Representatives / H&S Representatives Pro-Forma below as soon as possible.
STATUS OF THE SCHOOL / H&S REPRESENTATIVE
An accredited school representative is an elected representative of INTO. The INTO provides each school representative with written credentials which set out:
- The school the appointment covers;
- The duties of the school representative.
The Accreditation Certificate bears the authorizing signature of the Northern Secretary. The school/H&S representative should always be aware that in the carrying-out of these duties she/he is acting on behalf of INTO and that management must recognize her/him as the representative of INTO members in the school.
Northern Office issues the school representative with the following documents:
- Accreditation Letter;
- School representatives’ information material;
- Membership application forms.
