The annual Wisconsin State AF L-CIO Community Services Conference will be held March 30, 31, and April 01 at the Madison Concourse Hotel. The conference will begin with a plenary session at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday , March 30. Registration will open that morning at 10:00 a.m.

Registration Materials are available here

This annual event promises excitement, education, and motivation - an agenda filled with workshops and keynote/political speakers! We would like to encourage ALL affiliates to send at least one participant to the conference. 

This conference really is a call to action - with the hope that the education and information provided will allow participants to become more involved in both the labor movement and also within their communities. The AFL-CIO Labor Engagement program is about "making the community a better place in which to live, work, raise a family, and retire".  It is about mobilizing Union members - through local unions and central labor councils - to address

workplace and social justice issues. By building strong partnerships with other community and faith organizations, more can be achieved.
