The NFFE National Convention is an excellent opportunity for delegates from every one of NFFE’s nearly 175 Locals to come together and conduct the business of our union. Convention participants elect our national officers, make changes to the union’s bylaws, and participate in discussions with some of the leading voices in labor and government.

 

Convention is rapidly approaching, so locals are encouraged to start thinking about how many delegates you would like to send, and making the appropriate financial arrangements.

If your Local has elected an alternate delegate, the alternate delegate’s name should be listed on the credential form on the blank line on the credential form that is immediately below that of the address lines for the delegate. The alternate delegate will only be seated as a delegate if the delegate listed on the upper portion of the credential form does not register or participate in the Convention.


Registration will open on Sunday, September 25, 2016 from 1 P.M. to 7 P.M.  Registration will reopen at 7 A.M. Monday, September 26, 2016 and close at 9:15 AM.  Registration will be $75 per delegate in attendance.  Guest fees will be $50 for guests age 12 and above attending convention events.  Checks/Money Orders are to be made payable to National Federation of Federal Employees FD-1.

Proposed Amendments*

                What are Amendments and Resolutions?

Amendments propose changes to the Bylaws and are specifically addressed in Article XV of the National Bylaws. Resolutions do not change the national bylaws. Instead, resolutions set policy or direct NFFE to act in ways not otherwise covered by the bylaws.


Both amendments and resolutions will be voted on by 
delegates to the 50th NFFE National Convention in Orlando, FL.
