The convention will also serve as a celebration of the union’s 75th anniversary.

NAPE president, Carol Furlong says, “Our 75th anniversary is a time to celebrate our long list of accomplishments. Biennial Convention is the perfect venue to pay tribute to those who have built and strengthened our union during the past 75 years.”
