Dear Brothers –
Just a note to let you know about the 2017 conference held in Atlanta this year for The Professional Firefighters of Georgia that I attended yesterday.
After registering our local, I along with two other local leaders was put on the elections committee before elections were held.
The following are the results from the election:
Mike Dodd - President
Robert (Bob) Milie - Vice President
Alex Hofstadler - Secretary
Mark Borell - Treasurer
Donna Dingler - Trustee
Ryan Osborne - Trustee
Nate Leota - Trustee.
A brief report from the state was followed by a report from all locals present. Afterwards, an afternoon planning session with a workshop for the projected goals of the state and its affiliates took place in the afternoon.
State Rep. Micah Gravely came and spoke at the meeting and expressed the importance of political contacts, something we as a local know very well. Also, Senator John Albers, Co-Sponsor of HB146 and Rep. Micah Gravely was present and they were awarded a proclamation from the PFFG for their hard fought success on the cancer legislation.
We will keep you updated of upcoming meetings and information we are working on. I just wanted to let you know that Local 2563 is out there working on your behalf.
