We are a month away from our annual COPE Institute, and a little over a year away from a pivotal electoral cycle. While there appears to be no shortage of presidential candidates, similarly, there is no shortage of issues important to unions.
Topics will include 2020, but also this year’s local elections, and our growing Path to Power program, which focuses on helping card-carrying union members get elected to any number of seats throughout Pennsylvania. (There are over 20,000 elected officials in Pennsylvania! All can have an impact on our member’s lives). Too often, Democrats and Republicans both, have not put us first. Union members in elected office can change that.
Please feel free to distribute the flier throughout your membership. The Conference Center at Shippensburg University is centrally-located along the Pennsylvania Turnpike and I-81 and is attached to a brand-new hotel. The conference registration fee of $200 includes accommodations meals and the Friday night reception, along with materials and more. Hotel accommodations can be made in the PA AFL-CIO room block before Wednesday, July 31, at the special rate of $89/night.
We are looking forward to a great conference. We’ll see you there!
