This year’s MFPE Annual Conference will be held virtually, April 17! Please mark your calendars. This annual event is MFPE’s most important gathering. During this year’s Annual Conference, we will elect a statewide officer (NEA Director) as well as board members from half of MFPE’s membership districts. Delegates will also adopt our statewide dues and budget.

This year’s meeting will be held virtually due to ongoing COVID-related limitations on large events.  Once registered, confirmed delegates will receive information about attending the MFPE Annual Conference in communications to delegates later this spring.

Don’t let your local go unrepresented! This important work demands the voice and representation of every MFPE local. Every local is entitled to one delegate, and locals with more than 25 members are eligible to send one delegate for every 25 members. If you’re interested in attending as a delegate, please talk to your local president. Every local MFPE affiliate is entitled to send at least one delegate. Delegates are selected at the local level.

To get a preview of what decisions will be made at the Annual Conference, you and your members will want to attend one of our three Virtual Spring Meetings – March 3, 10, or 17.   These meetings will preview the important decisions that will be made at the Annual Conference and provide updates about statewide issues, including legislation, affecting you and your fellow MFPE members.

 

 

If you have any questions about the process, contact Becky Thomas:  [email protected] or call 800-398-0826 or 406-442-4250.
