Chapter 173 wins bid for 2021 convention!!
NTEU’s 2021 Convention is coming to Detroit! Chapter President Robert Holland and VP of Trade, Youssef Fawaz gave a presentation at the 2017 National Convention in a bid of getting the 2021 Convention to be held right here in Detroit. Part of the presentation was showing a video that Chapter President Robert Holland filmed, edited and narrated to the crowd of 500 delegates of NTEU. (The video can be seen below) By a landslide, Detroit received 51% of the vote over San Diego and Orlando in the first round. This was a major statement as in years past there has always been a need to for 2 rounds of voting as no one had secured the majority vote in the first round. This is a major win for us as this puts Detroit squarely in the eyes of our National Representatives and we will be a loud voice in their ears. By being selected as the host city, Detroit and Chapter 173 will have a raised profile and allow us to have a large deal of input on upcoming agendas. This will be an extreme amount of work in the coming years to make sure that we properly host our representatives that will be attending from across the country. Chapter President Robert Holland is excited for the event and has already began working on plans for the 2021 Convention!
