REGISTER TODAY! The Wisconsin State AFL-CIO Community Services Conference is taking place March 12th-14th in Madison this year.
The Conference is a great opportunity to meet labor activists from across the State, hear from insightful speakers, and build your skills with a variety of workshops- including workshops facilitated by Milwaukee Area Community Service Liaisons Jay Reinke and Emily Mueller.
You can also nominate a union member or a community service project for the Ralph A. Jirikowic Award. More information is included in the packet.
Don’t miss out on a great time!
This conference really is a call to action – with the intent that the education and information provided will allow participants to become more involved in both the labor movement and also within their individual communities. The AFL-CIO Labor Engagement program is about “making the community a better place in which to live, work, raise a family, and retire”. It is about mobilizing Union members – through local unions and central labor councils – to address workplace and social justice issues. By building strong partnerships with other community and faith organizations, more can be achieved.
Thursday’s opening plenary session will include the presentation of the Ralph A. Jirikowic Award and the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO Project Award. Nominations for both awards are due on Saturday, February 29. Application forms with additional information are here.
Over the three days, conference attendees will hear from the President and Secretary-Treasurer of the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO. Updates will be given on a number of Labor initiatives, the upcoming spring election and Presidential primary, the fall election, and much more. There is much work to be done, to make Wisconsin better for all working families, and this is an excellent opportunity to hear first-hand about plans for the upcoming year.
We are certain that you will find the conference educational and packed with useful information that you can take back to your local unions. Please submit your registration fee and completed registration form(s) by Monday – March 2, 2020.
