To Do For All That Which No One Can Do For Oneself

There’s nothing worse than trying to reach out to one of your family members or friends, but realizing you don’t have their current email, phone, or mailing address. When it comes to our union family, having accurate contact information is just as important.
That’s why AFGE members voted at the 2015 National Convention to make January “Data Update Month.” And this year, when you update your profile with your contact information, you’ll be put in a drawing for AFGE swag – and maybe even a brand new TV. 
To kickoff 2017, we’re asking every member of the AFGE family to take a couple minutes to update their contact information so we can mobilize members and spring into action when the time comes.  
When you update your profile, you’ll be automatically entered in a drawing to win a brand new AFGE coffee mug. Each week up to 5 names will be drawn and winners will be announced on Facebook. To keep up with weekly drawings and to see if you’re the lucky winner, follow AFGE on Facebook. 
The Deadline for updating your information is January 31st, so don’t delay. Need Help? Contact us at

Haven’t Heard From Us In A While?Updates

There’s probably a reason for that.  And that reason could be an outdated address, email address, telephone number, or all of the above. That’s why we designated every January as AFGE’s Data Update Month. After reaching an important milestone of 300,000 members in 2015, we have been working to make sure that we have the most accurate contact information for everyone. AFGE thanks our members and leaders who took the time to update your information.

Here are the results:

Phone numbers: 13,529 people updated their phone number, for a 709% increase over the monthly average.

Addresses: 4,521 people updated their addresses in June for 109% increase. Email: 11,010 people entered a new email or updated their existing email, for a 74% increase over normal monthly activity.

Government Standard: 1,000 people opted for electronic Government Standard. If you haven’t updated your individual and/or local information, please do so today at  Updates.
