Speakers emphasized the need to turn out to vote and to vote specifically for candidates that would support state workers.

James Mathias, District 38, Fred Mason, President MD/DC AFL-CIO, Ernest Grecco, President Metro Baltimore AFL-CIO, Joslyn Williams, President Metro Washington AFL-CIO, Delegate Norman Conway, District 38B, and Donna Edwards, Secretary-Treasurer MD/DC AFL-CIO.

During the convention, members handled a good deal of business but also enjoyed themselves at dinners and receptions. There was a great deal of fellowship during the down-time away from doing the business of the union, and members were able to raffle off prizes to raise money for their various areas.
