Join AFSCME Next Wave
Keep the Wave Rolling!
The AFSCME Next Wave program is an organization aimed at AFSCME members who are 35 years of age and younger, who are building the union movement.
Did you know that 55 percent of our AFSCME members are over the age of 50 and will be eligible to retire within the next 10 years? This exodus will leave a huge leadership void and loss of institutional memory. The future of our organization depends upon our ability to identify and activate new young member leaders to fill the gap when seasoned activists move on.
Sometimes, local meetings aren't the best point of entry into our union for a fledgling member. Next Wave hosts fun, purposeful events to draw young people in and get them excited about AFSCME. We hope people will then emerge prepared to enter our local energized and inspired to be active participants.
