The UAPD Statewide Membership Meeting Weekend will take place October 22 – 23, 2010 in San Diego. Some highlights of the weekend include:Free CME: On Friday morning, the UAPD Continuing Education Program continues with a special four (4) credit CE/CME entitled “Doctor-Patient Communication & Privacy: New Laws and Technologies.” In this class UAPD doctors and other experts will provide an analysis of Electronic Health Records, Telemedicine, and other technologies that may change the way we communicate with and about our patients.
Statewide Membership Meetings: On Saturday morning, members can attend one of five statewide membership meetings. For the first time, we will be holding a separate membership meeting for California State University (CSU) doctors. In addition, there will be membership meetings for State-employed, County-employed, Private Practice/IPA, and Retired doctors. Agendas for the meetings will be developed over the coming weeks.
Steward Training: Senior Labor Representative Patricia Hernandez, J.D., will train state stewards and county leaders in grievance handling, dispute resolution, and contract enforcement. The training, which is open to all interested members, will serve as an introduction for new stewards and a refresher course for experienced ones.
UAPD will pay the travel expenses, as well as Friday night hotel costs, for all Union Stewards and County Bargaining Team Members. Our Oakland office must make all travel and lodging arrangements for Board Members, Stewards, and County Bargaining Team Members
