HOW TO ASK YOUR UNION TO SEND YOU TO THE CONFERENCE

ASKING YOUR UNION TO HELP SEND YOU TO THE CONFERENCE.

Over the years, we have put together some guidance and assistance to help union sisters (and brothers as interested) to ask for financial assistance to attend the Women’s Conferences.

The earliest registration discount period closes February 20. Costs to attend the Conference include registration, transportation, and lodging. Breakfast and lunch on Saturday and Sunday are provided. Dinners are on your own as light refreshments only are provided at the evening functions. Building trades affiliated union members receive a $15 discount on registration. Remember to include all hotel taxes when estimating your expenses.
