The Representative Convention is our highest governing body, with more than 600 elected delegates meeting annually to set policy for the union. We typically mail information to local presidents as part of the Convention Call in late February each year.

The 2022 RC will be held April 22-23 at the Saint Paul RiverCentre.

Local presidents must submit all delegate and alternate names no later than March 18, 2022.

Education Minnesota emails each year’s RC program and copies of proposed bylaw amendments to individual registered delegates approximately three weeks before the convention.

Frequently asked questions

Where does the RC take place? How do I get there?
The 2022 RC is scheduled for Friday, April 22 through Saturday, April 23 at the Saint Paul RiverCentre. The convention will begin at 7 p.m. on Friday and end Saturday when all business has concluded.

The RiverCentre is located at 175 Kellogg Blvd. W., St. Paul, MN 55102.

What expenses does Education Minnesota cover?
Education Minnesota will provide:

  • One standard hotel room for one night for each local sending at least one delegate. When registering delegates online, the local must identify the designated delegate receiving the Education Minnesota funded hotel room. Room and tax for that room will be added to Education Minnesota’s direct bill so the delegate will not be charged; however, the local or delegate will still be responsible for making the hotel reservation.
  • One round-trip mileage reimbursement per delegate.

How do I make a hotel reservation?
All delegates are responsible for securing their own accommodations. Education Minnesota has a obtained a block of rooms at two hotels that are skyway connected to the RiverCentre and you may choose to say at either on a first come, first serve basis.

Hotel rates are as follows (taxes not included):
Single or double occupancy: $139
Triple occupancy: $149
Quad occupancy: $159

The cutoff date for securing reservations for the Education Minnesota convention is March 23, 2022.
