At the February membership meeting 82 delegate nominations we made for the 2015 National FOP Conference to be held on August 9 – 13, 2015 in Pittsburg, PA. I would encourage everyone who was nominated to block this time with vacation days to ensure you have the ability to attend. Three (3) detail days will be provided to all active members elected as delegates to attend the conference, which can be switched for your approved vacation days. Five (5) days will be given for all Elected Board Members and Chairpersons of Standing Committees.
Each member of the delegation will be required to submit an email to FOP_Conference@FOP3.org stating the following:
- Full Name
- Current Assignment or Retiree
- A good phone number
- Shirt size
- Preferred roommate( if sharing a room)
- An email address
Hard copy forms will be provided at the lodge for those members without email access.
Each member of the delegation will need to provide a $200.00 deposit, in check form, made out to FOP#3. This check will be returned to you after you have completed your duties as a Conference Delegate in accordance to the conference rules and by-laws. Checks must be received by May 31, 2015. If you want your voided check returned, please provide a self- addressed stamped, postage paid envelope when submitting your deposit.
Any member wishing to have a single room will be responsible for half of the total room rate including tax for the entire conference. Payment must be made in full by check or money order no later than May 31, 2015.
Each delegate will be provided one (1) shirt at no expense to the member. Additional shirts can be purchased at full price. Please indicate in your email if additional shirts are requested and the sizes. Everyone will be expected to wear the shirts on the voting day of the conference.
All elected delegates must attend the mandatory meeting which will take place in July 28, 2015 at 6pm at the Lodge. This is a requirement of the by-laws. Failure to attend could result in the revocation of your delegate status. In addition to receiving details of the conference, a member of the delegation will be elected as the “Chairman of the Delegation”. The chairman will act as the voice of the delegation during the conference.
