From June 7 – 10, AFGE members will meet at the 2016 National Leadership Meeting in Philadelphia, PA to discuss the future of our union. The last time we held a meeting like this, we created the Big Enough to Win plan – a vision with concrete goals that propelled us to 300,000 members and set the stage for even bigger successes down the road.
But now anti-government lawmakers and well-funded corporate interest groups are ratcheting up their attacks on public servants like never before. They have laid siege to your workplace rights, threatened to privatize our government, and attempted to silence us all. We must gather together to fine-tune our plan and make sure that we’re united in our efforts to fight back.
Time is running out to add your voice to the conversation. Here are the top three reasons why you should register today to attend this year’s National Leadership Meeting:

In Philadelphia, you’ll have the opportunity to learn how some of the most influential thought leaders in the labor movement have countered attacks on working people. We may be from different unions and work in different sectors, but an attack on one group of working people is an attack on all.
Our union has grown and changed since our last major strategic planning meeting. It’s time to talk about the things that stand in the way of us standing together. During the meeting, we’ll reconnect with the values and commitments we share as members of the fastest growing union in the nation.
With all that is at stake in 2016 and beyond, this meeting is too critical to miss. We cannot be successful without your voice, your commitment, and your strength. We hope you will join hundreds of fellow leaders and help us become Big Enough to Win! Register today and we will see you in Philadelphia!
