2014 IBEW Women’s Conference Sept. 17-20
June 19, 2014
Hundreds of IBEW sisters are expected in San Antonio Sept. 17-20 for the Seventh IBEW International Women’s Conference.
Items on the agenda include workshops on getting women involved in the 2014 election, empowering women to become leaders in the IBEW and organizing skills building.
Pre-conference events include a session on grassroots lobbying and a labor film festival. There will also be branch and International Vice-Presidential district meetings as well.
“2014 is shaping up to be a very important year in the fight for workers’ and women’s rights,” said Civic and Community Engagement Director Carolyn Williams. “The conference is great opportunity to show how women members can become more involved – at our workplace, union hall and community.”
All locals from across the IBEW in the United States and Canada are encouraged to participate.
Local unions may register delegates for the conference online through “Local Connections” at https://secure.ibew.org. Registration is $75. For questions or additional information, call the Civic and Community Engagement Department at 202-728-6204 or CivCommEngage@IBEW.org.
