WASHINGTON - The 300,000-member National Association of Letter
Carriers (AFL-CIO) announced today that it has selected
Philadelphia as the site of the 69th Biennial NALC National
Convention in 2014.
NALC President Fredric V. Rolando said the convention, one of
the largest in the union movement, will be held July 21-25, 2014
at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia. The NALC’s
last convention, in 2008 in Boston, attracted more than 7,400
“The NALC and letter carriers across the nation are excited
about returning to the City of Brotherly Love where we can conduct
our important business sessions in modern, union-operated
convention facilities, accompanied by an outstanding selection of
unionized hotels within close proximity,” Rolando said.
The convention host will be NALC Philadelphia Branch 157, which
also was the host for the 63 rd Biennial Convention in 2002. The
vote by the union’s 28-member Executive Council followed a report
from a Convention Site Committee headed by Secretary-Treasurer
Jane E. Broendel.
