30th Anniversary A-PLUS National Convention
Greetings A-PLUS Members, Supporters, Family, and Friends,
A-PLUS is celebrating our 30th Anniversary National Convention in Philadelphia, beginning with the pre-convention activities on Thursday, April 20th, 2017. We invite you to join us as we share in this historic occasion. The theme is, “Celebrating 30 Years of Success, Moving Forward, Exceeding the Vision”, which is appropriate as we celebrate our Founders and continue their vision as we move forward to the future.
In 1987, A-PLUS was established and we aim to continue to meet the expectations formed. In this our 30th year, we continue to achieve the mission of A-PLUS: to promote the goals of the United States Postal Service unify and mentor African-American EAS/PCES employees and to monitor the statistical progress of minorities in hiring, promotions, separations, details and assignments while forming beneficial alliances with organizations such as the NAACP. LUNA, NETWORK, corporate sponsors, and other supporters.
The convention presents opportunities to attend top quality networking and developmental training. We listened to your suggestions and recommendations and incorporated them into planning this convention. We will continue to include current relevant workshops, sessions, and opportunities to network with Postal Executives and Managers. The workshops and speakers will inspire and motivate you.
We ask you to join us on Thursday, April 20th, at our Red Cross Blood and Be The Match Drive in honor of Dot Sharpe. On Friday, April 21st we will honor the Founders of A-PLUS for their insight and courage to create our organization. The Parade of Chapters will be held on Saturday, April 22nd and the 30th Anniversary Award Banquet will be on Sunday, April 23rd. The banquet will be a black-tie event and it promises to be the highlight of the convention! Monday, April 24th, you will enjoy a farewell breakfast.
We hope to see every A-PLUS member at the convention. Please register early as the hotel will fill up quickly. A-PLUS is planning to book the entire hotel for this very special event!

We welcome you to the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection.
