2018 WAC/CMCA Conference

2018 WAC/CMCA Conference!

During the weekend of May 18-20, OCSEA's Women Action and Minority and Community Affairs committees will come together to host their second annual joint conference. This year’s conference theme is: The Dream Continues with Us.

The WAC and CMCA committees work to take on the issues that face public employee women and minorities in the workplace. There will be particular emphasis on unifying around national attacks to workers’ unions and the impact that the upcoming the Janus v. AFSCME U.S. Supreme Court case decision could have on women and minority public employees.

The Committees will also hold a canned food drive during the event to distribute to a local food pantry.
