Tuesday’s schedule will include the PFANJ’s Bravest Annual Golf Invitational in support of the PFANJ Emergency Relief Fund. It will also feature, for the first time, hands on training classes. These H.O.T. sessions will cover an array of firefighter survival skills and be taught by fellow IAFF & PFANJ members. A hospitality room will be open at the Tropicana after both events for members to gather.
Wednesday will feature a traditional opening ceremony and a line-up of speakers including leaders from throughout the IAFF, PFANJ, and world of politics. The annual Landshark Bar & Grill event will immediately follow on the Atlantic City Boardwalk in support of the PFANJ PAC Fund.
Thursday will offer two tracks of IAFF Partnership Education Courses (PEP). These tracks have been designed to help our locals and members better prepare for the new realities organized labor might have to face in the light of the upcoming Janus “right to work” decision. One track will focus on developing union leaders and the other on union engagement, communication and outreach. Additional, non-PEP workshops will be held throughout the day covering topics ranging from retirement and benefits, to legal issues. Thursday will wrap up with the annual Brotherhood event in support of the PFANJ Emergency Relief Fund.
