One of the indicators of a strong local is a diverse team of knowledgeable, well-trained elected and appointed leaders. That includes Member Rights Advocates, who deal directly with members to address their concerns, resolve their problems and enforce our contracts.

MRA II: This session covers investigating an issue, informal problem-solving techniques and organizing as alternatives to more formal avenues such as grievances or legal proceedings (five hours).
