This event is considered the premiere training forum for public sector employees in the Commonwealth.
“The 2.5 day annual PELRAS Conference in State College saw an all-time high in attendance as it is a proven difference maker in controlling personnel costs with the ultimate beneficiary being Pennsylvania taxpayers,” said PML Executive Director Richard J. Schuettler. “PELRAS is clearly the elite local government labor relations program in the Commonwealth.”
The Conference, March 16-18, was attended by municipal managers, elected officials, police and fire chiefs, solicitors, personnel and finance directors, and risk administrators. Over 20 labor relations specialists addressed key issues via panel discussions, in-depth seminars, case examples, role-playing and Q&A sessions supplemented with a comprehensive reference manual, access to PELRAS attorneys and networking opportunities.
