No person may accept a nomination for more than one CSALC office. Self-nominations are allowed. If there is only one candidate for a CSALC office, that position shall be declared elected by consent.

If necessary, the election of officers by secret mail ballot shall include only duly elected delegates by and for their branches. Branches that have been unable to elect delegates to the 2021 CSALC Convention due to the pandemic may authorize their delegates to the previous CSALC convention to participate in the nomination and election of CSALC officers. Election ballots will be mailed to the home addresses of the qualified delegates. Ballots will be mailed no later than August 23, 2021. The deadline for returning completed ballots to the designated PO Box, PO Box 4948, Ontario, CA 91761-0857, is September 19, 2021, by 5:00 pm PDT. On September 20, 2021, the election committee will retrieve the ballots and begin the count.

A branch may choose to vote unit rule for the entire membership, and this decision must be made in writing and received by CSALC Secretary Mark Lesch by July 20, 2021.

The term of office shall be 3 years commencing from the date of installation of officers. The date of installation of officers will be determined at a later date.

Copy of Dispensation Letter issued by NALC President Fredric Rolando

To all California local branches,

Due to the strength and second wave of COVID-19, the California State convention has once again been rescheduled. The new dates are November 19 and 20, 2021. There will also be a full day of training on Thursday, November 18, 2021. The location will remain the same: Wyndham Bayside in San Diego.

A new link for making the November 2021 reservations will be provided by the hotel in the near future. In addition, a new convention call will go out to the branches in the Spring of 2021. I apologize for any inconvenience that these changes are causing.

It goes without saying that these are extraordinary times filled with challenges and disappointments. But, once again, letter carriers have risen to the occasion and have proven how vital they are to our nation. A recent Harris Poll lists the USPS number one, out of one hundred, as the most essential companies during the pandemic. I am proud and honored to serve as your State President.

In solidarity,

Harold Kelso
President
California State Association of Letter Carriers
