Hyatt Place
O’Hare Airport

The United Postmasters and Managers of America (UPMA) designed the Chapter Member Representative Training to equip chapter member representatives with the knowledge, skills, and resources necessary to fulfill their roles as CMRs within their local chapters effectively. This training program focuses on representing in Investigative Interviews, ELM 650 Mediation, and ELM 650, 651, and 652 appeals and fostering leadership, enhancing communication, and promoting engagement among chapter members to strengthen the overall impact and effectiveness of UPMA at the grassroots level.

CMR 201 will briefly cover all the basics of CMR 101 and then expand the role of CMRs in 650 Mediations and Appeals of Adverse Action. We will also cover the interaction between the CMR, the National Member Representative, and the UPMA Legal team, with an eye on Merit Service Protection Board appeals.

CMR 201 will take place at the Hyatt Place Chicago O’Hare on Saturday, October 26, 2024.

Every member wishing to attend this event must register.

The training session will begin at 8:00 AM and expected to conclude by 5:00 PM. Lunch will be provided.
