The annual Wisconsin State AFL-CIO Community Services Conference will be held March 24, 25, and 26 at the Madison Concourse Hotel and Governor's Club. The conference will open with a plenary/general session at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 24. Registration will be available that morning beginning at 10:00 a.m. Details regarding the registration fee, lodging, and related matters can be found here. 

This conference really is a call to action - with the intent that the education and information provided will allow participants to become more involved in both the labor movement and also within their individual 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.

Thursday’s opening plenary session will include the presentation of the Ralph A. Jirikowic Award and the Wisconsin State AFL- CIO Project Award. Over the three days, conference attendees will hear from speakers on a variety of topics. Updates will be given on a number of Labor initiatives, the upcoming spring election, the critical fall election, and much more. What are the strategies for 2022 and beyond? Can some of the anti-worker legislation and policies be reversed? There is much work to be done, to make Wisconsin better for all working families, and this is an excellent opportunity to hear first- hand about plans for the upcoming year. And we will have sponsored hospitality both Thursday and Friday evenings, to allow for all to have the chance to meet other Union activists from across the state.

We are certain that you will find the conference educational and packed with useful information that you can take back to your local unions. Please submit your completed registration form(s) by Monday - March 14, 2022.


If you have questions concerning the conference or need additional information/clarification, please contact Ann McNeary, AFL-CIO Labor Liaison and Conference Chair, at either or 608- 246-4355.
