2023 Winter Advocacy Retreat RFP OPEN

The NSO Winter Advocacy Retreat (WAR College) will be held January 12-14, 2023, in San Diego, California.

This is a great opportunity to share your knowledge and skills with your NSO union colleagues. Please remember sessions need to be appropriate for all NSO members and should be focused on NSO Affiliates, NSO members, and their needs. We want to be able to offer a wide variety of trainings as well as address some specific needs of our affiliates.

NSO Affiliates have requested training in the areas of bargaining, advocacy/representation skills, peer to peer conflict resolution, strategic planning, and presentation skills. Affiliates have also requested sessions that would fit into an “experienced” or “advanced” track of any of these topics.

We continue to seek RFPs related to the role of unions, staff and organizations in racial and social justice. Other areas of expertise are welcome and encouraged. As always, we also strongly encourage our members who are Associate staff to submit RFPs.

Please complete the following form and return it to nsowar@nationalstaff.org no later than July 22, 2022. The entire form must be complete to be considered. Questions can be directed to John Avouris, Vice-President for Program, at vpprogram@nationalstaff.or
