Secretary & Treasurer Tools

The purpose of this page is to assist the SMART Transportation Division local secretary/treasurer with the duties of his or her office. Below you will have access to a number of resources to assist you.

Have questions about your duties as a local secretary or treasurer? Your Membership Representative Teams will be able to get you those answers.

A team of Membership Representatives has been assigned to provide specialized service to your local. These staff members will work to familiarize themselves with each of the locals they serve. With time and interaction with you, they will be able to provide specialized and efficient service to assist with your challenges as a Local Treasurer.

Beginning in January 2019, your Membership Representative team will be your go-to resource for any and all questions you may have as a Local Treasurer. If your Membership Representative is unable to answer your questions, he or she will escalate it to the appropriate person or department.

These assignments were communicated to locals through introductory letters sent out with the December mailings or you can view them here. Your team members will be available to help with any questions and concerns as the transition to TD Connect and the new version of WinStabs progresses.
