Change to New Business Items submission protocol and format!
For many years the New Business Item (NBI) submission and creation process was convoluted and difficult for all members to access. There was no clear deadline, forms or information were not clear or easily accessible for ALL SEA members, and there was no space for cost analysis. This new form is meant to clarify and organize NBIs in such a way that people know exactly what is being proposed and why.
The goal of this new format is to make sure there is clear communication with representatives and members; we also wanted consistent forms that are equitably accessible for all representatives and members.
The new form has some different prompts and information.
