HOUSE OF DELEGATES
The UPI House of Delegates shall be comprised of the elected members of the UPI Executive Board plus delegates elected by each UPI Chapter according to a ratio of one delegate per 15 Chapter members or major fraction thereof.
Delegates shall be elected to a three-year term of office, which shall coincide with the terms of office of UPI Local and Chapter officers.
The UPI President will call and conduct meetings of the UPI House of Delegates. A two-thirds vote of the UPI Executive Board or a 15% petition by the delegates can also call a meeting.
Regular meetings of the House of Delegates shall be held at least once a year. The agenda for each meeting shall be furnished to delegates one week in advance of regular meetings.
The House of Delegates may make recommendations to the Executive Board regarding the establishment of general UPI policy. In the event that the Executive Board votes against a House of Delegates recommendation, the Local President will report to the members of the House of Delegates with an explanation within three weeks of the action. It will also hear reports from the officers on the affairs of the UPI.
