REMINDER: 49th NFFE National Convention is Just Around the Corner


As summer comes to a close, we are now less than one month away from the beginning of the 49th NFFE National Convention. Scheduled for October 1-4, 2012, the union’s quadrennial Convention will take place at the historic Benson Hotel in downtown Portland.

The NFFE National 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.

Time is running out, so locals are encouraged to make their final preparations to attend. Our original block of rooms has been filled, but rooms may also be booked at hotels in the immediate vicinity of the Convention site. Here are two such hotels that also accept the government rate:
