Plans progress for August PPA Conference
On August 1-3, APWU editors, associate editors and officers will meet in Des Moines, Iowa for the 2019 biennial conference of the APWU National Postal Press Association. Preceding the conference will be a full day of workshops on Wednesday, July 31.
Established in 1967 and held every two years, the PPA Conference is not only for editors. It is an educational event specifically designed to help participants, whether novice or experienced sharpen their communication skills. Regardless of the office held in our union, learning about communication as a means to better represent the membership should be a part of every representative’s educational development. This conference is also a must for local or state organizations that are interested in establishing (or re-establishing) a communications program for its membership.
Led by a group of talented instructors from the Labor Movement, the intensive four-day program will cover a variety of communication-related topics. In addition to eleven workshops, the gathering will include three general sessions, four networking events and an awards banquet.
Further details about the conference, including workshop and registration information will be provided in the coming weeks.
