    The general session was addressed by Chris Bortollati, from the Western NY ALF, who gave a short presentation to the delegates concerning the Constitutional Convention question on this years ballot, and how it will adversely affect all labor unions in New York..We then had a short program with MDA’s Derek Murphy and family, with the 5 NYS division winners in this years’ MDA program and Fred..
We passed 2 of 3 resolutions in session, and President Rolando spoke on Legislative goals, and the parameters of the new tentative National Agreement..The nominations saw the entire block of Officers and Executive Board re-elected with minor changes..Fred then presided over the installation of officers on Tuesday morning..

My personal Thanks, to all Officers and Executive Board members, for a professional and well organized event that was enjoyed by everyone..Special accolades to Branch 3 Buffalo, and President Larry Kania, for an outstanding job..
