The 51st Annual Convention of the NC State AFL-CIO will be held Thursday and Friday, September 11-12, 2008. As is the tradition in all election years, our convention this year will be held in the capital city at the Hilton North Raleigh, 3415 Wake Forest Road, Raleigh, NC.
Hotel reservations must be made by August 10, 2008 in order to qualify for our group rate. Check out the convention flyer for more information.
Convention call letters were mailed early this month to Local Union presidents, full-time staff, state council presidents, Central Labor Council presidents, and our executive board. By now, member unions and councils should have also received a packet including delegate credentials. If your union or council has yet to receive either of these mailings, please contact our office ASAP.
We ask that member unions and councils plan ahead, make their delegate selections, hotel reservations, and send in completed credentials as soon as possible. The deadline for early registration is August 25th.
If you are a vendor of union goods or services to union members, families, or retirees and would be interested in having an information table at the convention, please contact our Operations Manager, Jeremy, at 919-833-6678.
