NFFE Incentives: For each new member that a Local signs up, the Local will be paid $100 per completed SF-1187. Payment will be made on a monthly basis; however, in order to receive payment, all Locals must submit signed and completely filled-out SF-1187s to the NFFE National Office, C/O National Secretary-Treasurer. The submitted SF-1187s will be used to tally new members and determine payment to the Locals. In addition, the top five Locals with the greatest percentage increase in density will be invited to send a representative to the next Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C. the following year, all expenses paid by NFFE.
