Although specific courses have yet to be determined, the four days of workshops and general sessions will explore the subject of communication and how it can be used to protect the interests of the membership and strengthen our union. Plans also include offering a “menu” of courses whereby members can select and attend workshops that best suit their particular needs. The PPA will continue its tradition of providing an “all union” educational program, as it will be presented by communication experts from organized labor.
