Upcoming KPFF Convention
The 2015 KPFF Convention is a little over 1 month away. As noted in previous emails, the IAFF will conduct PEP classes on August 10 beginning at 9:00 am. Regular business will take place on August 11 and 12. I am finalizing the agenda now so once it is complete, I will let you know. Opening Ceremonies are scheduled to begin at 9:00 am on the 11th. Sec/ Treas Daugherty has sent out the the credentials. Please return as soon as possible so that we can get an idea as to the numbers of attendees. This helps us determine how many will be attending the events in the evenings and also for food orders. If your Local has not received your credentials, please contact me immediately.
As far as the PEP classes on the 10th. You can bring as many of your members as you wish. They do not have to be registered delegates or alternates. Lunch will be provided to all participants. The classes provided will benefit your entire membership. The IAFF is going to create a link to register for the classes. Once I receive it I will forward it to you. Please register promptly so they know how many participants to expect. If we have more than anticipated, we can add an additional track.The list of classes are:
Dimensions of Leadership
Local Union Administration
Overview of Membership Services
Affiliate Officers Track
Duty of Fair Representation
Achieving Goals; Non-Collective Bargaining
I have blocked rooms at a discounted rate for 8/9-8/13/2015. If you have not already booked your rooms, do so as soon as possible so I can add additional rooms if I need to. When making reservations, tell them the Kentucky Professional Fire Fighters room block. PEP classes and Convention will take place at the Radisson.
