Our 50th Annual Convention is this August, and we want to hear from you! Every year at our annual convention, we have a business meeting where our members can discuss and debate and help set our agenda. It’s a great way to participate and vote. We have a district caucus governed by board members who reside in districts in Arkansas. They listen, then take ideas/suggestions back to caucus. MEMBERS: Don’t miss your chance to vote, attend our convention and business meeting! CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS!

The highlights from today’s personnel committee meeting included restoring on-call and certification differentials for the Arkansas Military Department and geographic-area differentials for the Department of Corrections and Community Corrections.
