Local 27 and the Magnificent 7th District will be hosting the 2018 Convention. This will be a historic convention marking the 100th year anniversary of this great Union.

Many Locals responded to the 7th District VP's call to assist with a modest financial contribution to Seattle Local 27 to offset some of the cost of securing this convention bid (please see the attached list). To the Locals on the list....a heartfelt thank you from the 7th DVP for helping. So prepare your budgets for attendance to the 2018 IAFF Convention to be held in Seattle!
