is pleased to invite your Local to participate in our Union's 2017 Legislative Advocacy Conference, February 5-10, 2017. This week-long event brings together
IFPTE members from across North America for training, workshops,
forums, and networking opportunities.
a part of our effort to build on IFPTE's legislative influence, the
Legislative Advocacy Conference will focus on policy and legislation
critical to the interests of all sectors of IFPTE’s membership. Included
in our activities, and perhaps the highlight of our Legislative
Advocacy Conference, will be member visits to lawmakers on Capitol
Hill where IFPTE will advocate for support of legislation important to
our Union’s diverse membership.
