Call for Nominations – 2020 President’s Award

This is a call for nominations for the IBEW Local 2228 President’s Award for 2020. Deadline for submissions is May 24, 2021.

Any member in good standing can submit nominations by forwarding them in writing to your Region Representative. Submissions should be as complete as possible and describe how the nominee has demonstrated the qualities described below during their activities in 2020.

The President’s Award is presented annually to a member, other than a current Table Officer or Executive Board member, who has contributed to the Local in the example of our first President, Brother Ed Donoghue, who gave of himself so that the Local could be born and grow.

Typically, the President’s Award recipient is a volunteer who has worked tirelessly on behalf of our members, encouraging them to come together to support each other and to hear new ideas. The recipient is a respected workers’ advocate, and has demonstrated leadership through their many union activities, some of which may include serving on committees and leading initiatives. The recipient has earned the respect of our members by providing service, guidance, and support to them during difficult times, all with good humour and a ready wit. The recipient has enhanced the reputation of the Local through their leadership, persistence, and professionalism.
