This year’s Conference is just under two weeks away and we are so excited to have our activists join us in Washington, D.C. With that being said, we want to get you primed with some education ahead of your arrival so you feel comfortable and ready to go when you arrive.

Join Us for a Pre-Conference Webinar!

We want all our delegates to feel confident about the work we’ll do in Washington, D.C. while we are there, so we are hosting four pre-conference Zoom webinars ahead of our arrival. Those will take place on May 9, 2024 and May 14, 2024, at 11:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. on both days. We’ll cover conference logistics, how to download the app, layout the agenda, give a heads up on the lobby issues we plan to take to the Hill, and do our best to answer any questions you may have.

Our Lobby Issues:

This year we will be taking our core issues to the Hill by telling Congress to reauthorize Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA), defend the final rule on Minimum Staffing Standards for Long-Term Care Facilities, and to fully fund and staff the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). We’ll cover these issues more in depth during our webinars, so please feel free to bring your questions!
