20TH BIENNIAL APWU NATIONAL CONVENTION, DETROIT, MI., MON., AUG. 23 THRU FRI., AUG. 27, 2010

A directional marker is at Detroit's Cobo Convention Center, Change is the theme of the American Postal Workers Union’s 20th Biennial Convention, which is set for Monday, Aug. 23 through Friday, Aug. 27, 2010, at Cobo Center in Detroit.

The National Convention is the union’s highest decision-making body and helps the union chart its course for the future. Approximately 3,000 APWU delegates will debate and vote on resolutions that will be introduced on a wide variety of subjects. The resolutions give focus to the union’s goals in contract negotiations and in the political arena, as well as in helping the organization function more smoothly and, thus, better serve its membership.

APWU locals and state organizations are urged to send their full quota of delegates.
Members-at-Large also are encouraged to avail themselves of the opportunity to attend the National Convention.
*
The process of securing credentials for the convention delegates will be online again this year. Beginning April 1, the president, secretary, treasurer, or secretary-treasurer will be able to log-on to the Members Only section of the APWU Web site and in just a few easy steps they will be able to register their members for credentials.
*
Several other important union events will take place in the days before and after the convention. Division Meetings for each of the crafts — Clerk, Maintenance, Motor Vehicle Service, and Support Services — are set for the weekend of Aug. 21-22, as is the APWU Retiree’s Conference.

The Bulk Mail Center (BMC) Conference will be held on Aug. 20. The APWU Research & Education Department series of workshops will be presented on Saturday, Aug. 28.

Most convention activities will take place at Cobo Convention Center in downtown Detroit, along the waterfront at One Washington Blvd. The Marriott, located in the GM Renaissance Center, has been designated as the headquarters hotel.
