Rochester Regional 2018 Winter Conference (formerly "Negotiations Conference")

Rochester Regional 2018 Winter Conference (formerly "Negotiations Conference")


November 26, 2017

Local Presidents-

Because of the impending Janus v. AFSCME Supreme Court decision, we have configured the Regional Winter Conference (formerly "Negotiations Conference") a little differently. The conference will again be at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Rochester on Saturday, January 27, 2018.  Registration deadline is Friday, January 5, 2018.  

We will again offer a Local Finances workshop on Saturday morning which will be available as a “stand-alone” workshop or as part of the full-day Winter Conference with lunch and an afternoon workshop. 

All conference attendees will be scheduled into the three-hour morning session (there will be breaks!) called "Let's Get Busy! Post-Fair Share Toolkit." We are hoping locals will send teams to the conference; we plan to group locals according to "where they are" in preparing for a new reality. Locals already involved in significant member engagement activities; locals just getting started on these activities; and locals who have yet to begin. LRSs will invite input from local presidents in determining where locals fit. Regardless of where your local fits, your team will learn proven strategies for building a stronger union. The morning sessions are relevant to SRP and all other units. SRP registration is again at half price.

We are keeping the cost of the conference at $70 per person for a full day (8 am-2 pm, includes parking, breakfast, breaks and lunch) and at $35 for a half-day (8-11:30 am, includes parking, breakfast and break).

After lunch, we are offering single 90-minute workshops which include many traditional negotiations topics. Locals may register all of their participants or participants may register individually. We will bill your local, not individual participants.

Listed workshops may be changed depending on registration numbers. Please call me or Traci Szalkowski at 454-5550 if you have questions or email at  or

We hope to see you on January 27th!
