Conservative Member Committee

Constitutional Amendment Statement

Conservative Member Committee: The Committee shall be responsible for engaging conservative SEA members in the union on as many levels as possible, in order to access the expertise, energy, and enthusiasm of these members. The Committee will work closely with the political department to develop positive relationships with union-friendly conservative legislators, and through these relationships develop other conservative legislators in the NH House and Senate.


Use critical thinking in a focused and creative process to influence the overall performance of our union as we work toward the shared goals of improving wages, benefits, and working conditions for all New Hampshire state employees. 

Develop conservative candidates for public office, obtain endorsements through established internal processes, and get candidates elected by working with the SEA and the GOP. Help elected officials make good decisions by maintaining ongoing relationships. 

Through these actions, improve life for our families, communities, and state.


Increase awareness of conservative SEA issues within the SEA and the public. Use our size within the SEA to help drive gains in wages, benefits, and working conditions. Develop and grow positive relationships with conservative legislators. Drive a thoughtful, creative, and focused political agenda through increased lobbying efforts with Republicans in the General Court. 

Dennis Etchells, chair of the Conservative Member Committee, speaking at the December Council meeting encouraging members to join. Dennis was also the recipient of the 2018 Ray Proulx award which recognizes a member’s dedication and expertise to advance the principles of our union through political action.
