CASE BOARD OF DIRECTORS UPDATE
New Supervisor & Manager Membership FAQ. Wondering how to explain the benefits of CASE Membership to your colleagues? Check out our new excluded employee FAQ that addresses some common myths and misconceptions about membership for supervisors and managers. You can share this resource with your friends and coworkers when you encourage them to join CASE. Is there a common question you’ve received that is missing from this list? Let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don’t Forget About the Membership Recruitment Incentive Program. To encourage all members to help us expand our influence and explain the individual and collective benefits of CASE Membership, the Board last fall established the Membership Recruitment Incentive Program. if you recruit a new CASE Supervisory or Manager Member and are listed as the referring member on their application, you’ll receive $100. The top recruiter in each quarter will receive a bonus payment as well. The referral name must be listed on the new member’s application at the time of submission and incentives are paid out quarterly. You’ll want to focus your efforts solely on your supervisor and manager peers since the Dills Act and Excluded Employee Bill of Rights prohibit you from recruiting rank-and-file members.
Our online membership application is easy for you to share and easy for your new supervisor and manager coworkers (or even not so new!) to complete. Find it here.

Protecting Your Rights. Any time you are called to answer questions, the answer to which might lead to discipline, you have the right to have a representative present. What should you do if someone is asking you questions that give you cause for concern? CASE members – and only members – can call CASE for consultation before the questioning starts, bring a CASE representative with them to the meeting, or ask to take a break and seek consultation if questions start in the midst of a meeting with a supervisor or manager. You also have the right to know the subject of any potentially investigative meeting before it begins. Don’t go it alone! Call CASE at (800) 699-6533 or email email@example.com any time you have concerns.
