The Committee on Public Education (COPE) played an important part at PEF’s 40th Annual Convention. The process for making legislative changes to help state services and jobs was explained. More than 100 delegates signed up to contribute to COPE or increased their donation. PEF Regions 3 and 11 had the most contributors, and won the raffle for the 40th anniversary banners that were displayed at the convention. Shown above are PEF COPE Coordinator Mario Chiarello, Annabelle Fritz, administrative assistant from PEF Region 3, and staff from the NYC regional office.
