Each year, CSEA honors members who go above and beyond in service to students and CSEA with the Member of the Year award.
The purpose of the Member of the Year Program is to recognize the commitment and dedication of classified employees to the students of California, community involvement, and activism in CSEA. The Awards Committee has completed its judging and is proud to present the 2019 Members of the Year:
Each of these members was presented their award at CSEA’s 93rd Annual Conference in Las Vegas and celebrated with a video tribute. A plaque was also presented to the awardees’ superintendent or designee to be proudly displayed at the district office.
The CSEA Member of the Year Program recognizes the commitment and dedication of classified employees to the students of California, community involvement, and activism in CSEA.
Nominees must be an active member in good standing. You will be asked to provide job-related skills, examples of outstanding character, community involvement, and to what extent they are active in the chapter. For example, how much do they volunteer to support the activities of the local chapter, etc.
The deadline has passed to submit nominations for this year's awards. Nominations were due March 1.

"People need to be validated for the work they do," says Lee Anne Gaxiola, 2015 Member of the Year. "You can be as humble as you want, but it certainly feels good and people need that recognition."
