Alfred K. Whitehead Legislative Conference
March 5-8, 2017
Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill
The Alfred K. Whitehead Legislative Conference has long been the cornerstone of the IAFF’s legislative efforts. The IAFF has won many significant victories over the years – from the SAFER program that promotes safe fire ground staffing, to ensuring the heroes of 9/11 receive the healthcare they deserve, to defeating legislation designed to undermine our members’ defined benefit pensions – due in large measure to the work local IAFF leaders have done at this conference.
This year, with a new administration and a new Congress, the work of constituent advocates will be more important than ever. We will guide you through the challenges and opportunities that await us on Capitol Hill and the White House. You will learn more about the new political landscape and its impact on programs and policies that affect fire fighters.
Additionally, members will learn about IAFF priority legislation and have the opportunity to advocate directly with legislators on key federal issues, including legislation impacting your jobs, health and safety and economic security.
It all begins at the Alfred K. Whitehead Legislative Conference. Join us.
