We are pleased to announce that the AFRAM 2015 Leadership
Conference will convene April 17-19, 2015 at the Westin
Detroit Metropolitan Airport in Detroit Michigan.
From the office of the President
Dear SEIU African American Caucus Members and Friends:
It gives me great pleasure to welcome each of you to the
SEIU-AFRAM website. This site gives SEIU members of African
descent an opportunity to network, renew old acquaintances,
develop new friendships and devise strategies on how we can
increase our contributions to the goals of our Union and
positively influence our communities.
The African American community faces tremendous challenges and
we cannot expect SEIU or any one organization or institution
to solve them for us. History has shown us that people of like
minds, dedicated to taking positive action can change the
world for the better. Our people throughout the history of
America have been charged with the task of fighting for
Freedom, Justice, Equality and our share of the best that
America has to offer.
Since its founding in 1996, AFRAM has played a significant
role in providing education and leadership development
experience for people of African descent. AFRAM has
consistently reminded our Union that our leadership should
reflect the membership. We believe that diversity is not a
slogan, but a strategy based on sound moral principles for
living in the world community, especially in the 21st century.
It looks like we have a place to have an Eastern Region
Executive Board Meeting on Saturday, March 27, 2010. Veronica
has confirmed the 1199 New Jersey office. I am requesting an
address from Veronica to send to you all. Due to the short
notice I am asking that you RSVP to see if this is doable. Also,
I am trying to do an agenda, so if there is something that you
would like to have on it, please send that too. If you have
contacts with other board members please notify them of this
meeting. If the New Jersey location so desire, we may can have a
meet and greet for any non Executive Board Members that may wish
to meet us. We will probably need a count. Kyle, and or Valerie,
can you notify the members in Philly. Some one may want to come
to represent the group.
