Maryland Professional Employees Council members and staff were in Annapolis to lobby on behalf of their membership. They came to the state capitol to discuss ensuring Maryland state professionals were priorities in the state budget. President Jerry Smith and chief steward Ronnie Myers had meetings in both houses of the General Assembly.

Other members and staff had the chance to engage with other legislators. As usual, the pension was something of great interest to members. MPEC took meetings with the chair of the House committee on Health and Government Operations Del. Shane Pendergrass. Also

The Maryland Professional Employees Council (MPEC)  and AFT Healthcare-Maryland (AFTHCMD) brought together a host of activists and leaders for an important stewards’ training on Friday, February 23, 2018. Jacqueline Raines of MPEC was the lead facilitator for the day but the staff of both organizations played a vital role in preparing the stewards for their duties. 33 professionals from MPEC and 11 healthcare professionals attended the training.
