39th IBEW International Convention

Sep 28, 2016

The 39th IBEW International Convention was recently held from Sept 19-23 in St. Louis, Missouri. Elected delegates and a NextGen contingent from Local 2228 attended the convention as well as additional caucus meetings and activities in the days leading up to the official proceedings.

It is difficult to describe the experience of participating in the IBEW convention. With nearly two thousand voting delegates in addition to alternates, NextGen participants, guests, sponsors, vendors, presenters and IBEW staff it was truly an awe inspiring event. Aside from the work involved in the meetings and proceedings it was also a great benefit to spend time with our many brothers and sisters from hundreds of other locals. Growing our mutual understanding by getting to know their struggles and successes, and realizing how much we all really have in common gave us a renewed sense of purpose and passion for the Brotherhood.
