Our 7th Annual Conference is coming up in Helena on Friday, April 5th through Saturday, April 6th. MFPE Annual Conference is Montana’s largest democratic decision-making body. It is our opportunity as MFPE members to come together and reaffirm our shared values.

Every local is eligible to send at least one delegate to Annual Conference. If you’re a local president, a conference registration packet was mailed to you on Jan. 29th, 2024. The deadline to register delegates is Friday, March 1st. Contact Becky Thomas at [email protected] or (406) 442-4250 if you have any questions. Go to mfpe.org/annualconference to learn more about the conference.

Together, we will dig into officer and board elections, constitutional amendments, a proposed budget and dues, staff reports, and organizing workshops. We, the members of MFPE, are committed to elevating native and people of colors’ voices and fostering leadership opportunities for these members. All active members are eligible to run for any MFPE officer position and nominations are due by March 1st.

The conference comes after over a dozen spring meetings across the state. These meetings will preview the issues to be decided by Annual Conference delegates. Register for these meetings at mfpe.org/events. All members are welcome!

Don’t miss Friday evening’s Hall of Fame Celebration where we will induct and honor retired members Deede Baker (Dept. of Labor), Marco Ferro (Bozeman Education Association and MFPE Staff), and Renne’t Sarbu (Dept. of Public Health and Human Services).

Join us at Annual Conference. It’s our union: Member led. Member Run.
