Our national union, the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), will be holding its 84th Convention this year from July 18th through July 21st in Minneapolis, Minn. Our state federation, the Health Professionals and Allied Employees (HPAE), will also be holding our statewide biennial convention this year on Oct 6th and 7th in Atlantic City. The conventions serve as the highest decision-making body of our union.
Members must be nominated and elected to serve as delegates. This year, delegate elections for both conventions will be held simultaneously. Nomination forms have been mailed to all members. The deadline for nominations is Friday, May 27.
