AFSCME is the largest and fastest growing public services employees union in the United States, with more than 1.6 million working and retired members and has approximately 3,400 local unions and 58 councils and affiliates in 46 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. We are extremely honored to have been chosen, and look forward to working closely with AFSCME leadership and with their many affiliates, some of whom are already clients. A block of Discovery dates has been reserved specifically for AFSCME affiliates through April of 2017. www.afscme.org

The 13th UnionWare Summit has been confirmed for September 27-28, 2016 (and the 26th if you come a day early for University). It will be held in our home town of Winnipeg, Canada. We've got some great things planned, from interesting new features and product ideas, to a fantastic tour and dinner at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. For those of you who have not been to Summit, it's a great way to have your say in how UnionWare evolves. Come meet us face to face, meet our clients too, share ideas and best practices, and make some good like-minded friends along the way. We hope to see you there. Check out the details here.
