49th NFFE National Convention Call Officially Released
This week, National Secretary-Treasurer William D. Fenaughty officially released the 49th NFFE National Convention Call, requesting that delegates join us to convene in Portland, OR this fall.
Mailed to every NFFE local on February 13, 2012, the convention call packet should arrive at your workplace shortly. Included in the packet are credentials instructions, amendment and resolution forms, instructions for submitting amendments and resolutions, national elections rules, and the official Convention call letter. If your local does not receive a mailed hard copy by March 1st, please notify NFFE Assistant to the President Jai Atkins at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also access the convention call packet on the NFFE National Convention page on our website, www.nffe.org.
The 49th National Convention will be held at the historic Benson hotel in downtown Portland from October 1-4, 2012. Convention is an excellent opportunity for delegates from every one of NFFE’s nearly 200 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.
