The Future in Focus: NALC’s 2015 National Conference in Houston

The future was very much on the minds of the nearly 1,500 letter carriers activists who were present for NALC’s 2015 National Conference in Houston July 17-19.

“None of what we do as a union works without you, the brothers and sisters of this union who step up as leaders,” NALC President Fredric Rolando said as he opened up the rap session portion of the weekend-long conference on Sunday.

Such conferences are called for by the NALC Constitution, which states that in years in which there is no national convention, the president must call a national conference for state association and branch presidents or their designees.

Attendees began arriving and checking in on Friday afternoon. On Saturday, these branch and state leaders attended a selection of educational workshops.

On Sunday at 9 a.m., President Rolando called the rap session to order in the Hilton-Americas Houston’s Grand Ballroom.
