2012 Alfred K. Whitehead

 Legislative Conference

March 25 - March 29, 2012

Washington Hilton
Washington, DC

The Alfred K. Whitehead Legislative Conference is the   cornerstone of the IAFF's legislative efforts.  The IAFF has won significant legislative victories on Capitol Hill due largely to the relationships that local IAFF leaders have with their elected officials. The Legislative Conference provides members with the opportunity to both strengthen these important relationships and lobby on IAFF priority legislation. 

Now is a crucial time for our union.  As the 2012 elections approach, we have an extraordinary opportunity to influence legislation that directly impacts the jobs, economic security and safety of IAFF members. 

The pages on this website will provide you with additional information on the Conference, registration, and accommodations while you are in Washington.

For more information, contact the IAFF Department of Governmental Affairs at (202) 824-1581 or govtaffairs@iaff.org.
