    Convention 2021
    Virtual Convention was held online March 26-27

    The Convention is the Federation’s highest governance body, where delegates shape union policy and positions on issues affecting all members. The biennial Convention is open to all CFT members, but only elected delegates can vote. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Convention 2021 was held online March 26-27. Some meetings were held in the days preceding the Convention.


    Lobby Days
    Make your voice heard in the State Capitol

    While the CFT legislative staff works hard to promote legislation on behalf of members, your presence in the halls of the Legislature gives a human face to the CFT and our fight for high-quality education. The CFT provides numerous opportunities for you to meet with state legislators one-on-one and share your experiences from the workplace.
