AMP pitches for NFPW Conference in 2017
The NFPW Board met in Birmingham in March for the annual meeting. During their visit, past AMP president Elaine Miller made a pitch to the group in an effort to make Birmingham the city for the NFPW National Conference in 2017.
"This was a grand opportunity to network with members of NFPW from all over the USA," Elaine said. They came in from Nebraska, Idaho, Virginia & DC area, Illinois, South Carolina, Kansas and other areas. She encouraged incoming AMP officers to meet with the national officers as well as headquarters staff.
Elaine was the visionary and driving force behind the effort to land the conference in Birmingham and worked long hours planning the agenda while the board members were here.
The board members visited Vulcan, The Civil Rights Museum, the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame, the 16 Street Baptist Church and other destinations.
