YFL 2014 IAM Legislative Conference Week Trip
The National Federation of Federal Employees (NFFE) has continuously evolved over the years in order to meet the ever-changing needs of our members and consequently, those of our Union. With the establishment of the Young Federal Leaders (YFL) initiative in 2012, NFFE has taken steps forward to address the need for secession planning and innovation within our Union and the increasing interest among a new generation of Union leaders. YFL seeks to educate and empower our young workers to lead our Union through equipping young members with adequate education, mentorship, and leadership opportunities.
NFFE is proud to announce that for the first time, we will be offering an all-expenses paid trip to the 2014 IAM Legislative Conference in Washington, DC from Monday, May 12, 2014 to Thursday, May 15, 2014 to a young federal worker who demonstrates a vision and commitment to the three principles of YFL (education, mentorship, and leadership). This trip would be an exceptional opportunity for a young worker to connect with seasoned NFFE-IAM Union brothers and sisters, be personally trained by Legislative Director Randy Erwin, meet with his or her Members of Congress, and meet with NFFE President Bill Dougan.
Incentive Prize: NFFE will cover the costs of the following for one individual to attend the 2014 IAM Legislative Conference: a round-trip flight, hotel stay, and transportation.
- More than one individual at a YFL chapter may apply.
- You may apply if you do not have a current YFL chapter at your Local but are interested in becoming involved in Young Federal Leaders henceforth.
- While we encourage NFFE-IAM members who identify as young (age 18 – 40) to apply, we will not turn away applicants who demonstrate a passion and vision for empowering young federal workers at their Locals.
