Are you a young AFSCME member who
would like to attend convention but have not been selected as a delegate or
alternate from your local? Council 75’s Next Wave group is sponsoring
young members to attend as guests!
This year’s convention will take
place April 13-15 in Bend, Oregon. Scholarship recipients will have an
opportunity to meet other young Council 75 members from around the state and
participate in the first statewide gathering of Next Wave.
Scholarships are available on a
first come, first served basis to young Council 75 members in good
standing. Recipients will attend convention as non-voting guests and are
expected to participate fully in Next Wave sponsored convention
This is a great chance for young
members who aren’t yet delegates to experience convention. Return to your local
energized and equipped to get involved!
