State Council Summit
With election year training intensive and Division Councils

Our State Council Summit in Oakland will bring members together in advance of our work to help transform the political landscape in November 2020. This event provides an opportunity to hear invited speakers, attend useful workshops, and get important legal updates that will keep your knowledge current and sharpen your skills as union leaders. The conference is being held in conjunction with Division Council meetings and State Council, the policymaking body of CFT in between Conventions. 

The Friday program will include two plenary sessions, two blocks of workshops, helpful legal updates, a dinner program, and an after-party with DJ and dancing.

On Saturday, the Division Councils and State Council will meet. The CFT will reimburse the travel expenses of one delegate per local union for representation at State Council. However, local union leaders and members are all welcome and encouraged to attend!

Division Councils
In conjunction with Committee meetings

It is important to send a representative from your local union to the union’s Division Councils so your local can be part of the decision-making. Division Councils meet regularly to share information and to formulate policy proposals for constituents, and oftentimes the larger CFT. All members are welcome to attend.

The Division Councils will meet after the CFT Committees meet earlier in the day. Council agendas will emailed to constituent local unions.
