Fall Midwest UALE meeting will be October 8-9, 2017

Greetings and happy summer!

You're receiving this e-mail because you are a member of the United Association for Labor Education or have expressed an interest in labor education.

The Midwest Region of UALE will hold our annual fall meeting Sunday, Oct. 8, and Monday, Oct. 9, in Iowa City. Everyone is invited, whether or not you are a UALE member.

The agenda is still being set, but the gathering will start at 1 p.m. Sunday, include a group dinner that evening, and end at 2 p.m. Monday. Hopefully this will allow adequate travel time.

All events, other than the evening dinner, will be at the Iowa Memorial Union, 125 N. Madison St., on the campus of the University of Iowa in Iowa City.

We have a bloc of rooms reserved at the Iowa House, the hotel that is part of the Memorial Union. The rate is $95 per night (no tax because it's a state-owned entity).  

Rooms can be reserved now by calling the reservation line, 319-335-3513, or going online to https://clients.innroad.com/iowa/property.aspx. Enter group code 1166, which will then pull up a listing of Labor Center conferences; find the one for UALE Midwest and proceed from there.

The Iowa House rooms come with a voucher for free parking. Reservations can be cancelled anytime up to 24 hours before you arrive.

Feel free to contact me with questions or ideas for the meeting. Traditionally, the agenda has included a curriculum exchange and the opportunity to share information on your labor education work.

I can be reached by email, or phone, 612-624-1104.

Look for more information on the meeting in the next e-newsletter!

In Solidarity,
