Executive Board

The SEIU Local 221 Executive Board: We Believe Leadership Matters

The Executive Board is the highest leadership body of our union. The primary role of our executive board is to inspire, motivate, and develop member leaders into action who are passionate about devoting time and talent to building a leadership team within their worksites. Our executive board sets the vision and program of our union and encourages members to exercise their leadership potential. That means members govern and are at the heart of every decision in our union. At the head of our member-driven governance is our union’s Executive Board.

Our Executive Board is made up of democratically elected leaders from across our membership, and is elected by fellow union members. The board meets bi-monthly to help shape the direction and priorities of our union. Guided by SEIU Local 221’s Constitution & Bylaws, they make decisions about our union’s budget, policies, and other organizational issues. The officers and board members are active union members representing every division in our union.

The Executive Board consists of 18 members. To ensure a representative governing body, there are several groups of seats which include:

  • Four officers: President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer
  • Three committee chairs: Politics, Member Organizing, and Social & Economic Justice
  • Seven Divisions, and Five County Division seats:
  • County: Community Services, General, Health & Human Services, Public Safety, and Support Services
  • Cities
  • Courts/Special Districts
  • Registered Nurses
  • Schools
  • Head Start
  • Health Services

The Executive Board of SEIU Local 221 has developed Board policies that are meant to establish best practices and ensure that the Board’s operations are transparent. View all Executive Board Policies & Procedures here.
