Each year, at CSEA's Annual Conference, we try to honor an individual member who vigorously advocates in political activities or specific causes important to the mission and goals of CSEA with the Richard C. Bartlett Activist of the Year Award. Unfortunately, in 2018, we did not receive enough nominations to have an Activist of the Year recipient that meets the requirements set by policy.
CSEA has countless members who devote their time to the service of their union through political activities, by building support from the community, recruiting new Victory Club members and working to strengthen CSEA. Those members deserve recognition and we encourage you to nominate them for the Activist of the Year award.
