    The IAFF/MPFFU Political Training Academy

    The MPFFU recently hosted the IAFF Political Training Academy in Novi on October 24th & 25th. Eighteen members from locals across the State attended. The class was taught by specially trained IAFF instructors: Cody Leever (President of Indiana Local 1262) and Christopher (Blue) Bartley, Directory of IAFF Government Affairs State Policy & Legislative Representative.


    The IAFF Political Department developed this two-day IAFF State/Provincial Elections and Political Capacity Development Program to provide students with hands-on political training and access to statewide/provincial campaign experts and resources. The goals for the State and Provincial PTA are to provide members modern and up-to-date campaign skills, building a network of local leaders capable of managing small-scale local campaigns or playing key roles in larger state/provincial wide efforts and to enhance, and where absent build, increased political campaign capacity and structures in the state/provincial associations.
