Trades Women Build Nations – Virtual Event October 17th

This year’s Trades Women Build Nations event is ON! Not surprising, it will be a virtual event, BUT it’s also free of charge–which means more Boilermaker sisters might be able to attend.

Registration is now open. The event is set for Saturday, October 17, and it will begin via Zoom at 11 a.m. eastern. Details are still in development, but our own Erica Stewart from L-693 will serve as an emcee and speaker.

Please help us promote the event to the members of your local lodge, and please consider adding the link to your local website and sharing it through your local’s social media channels. It is posted via the Boilermakers Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/Boilermakers.Union) if you prefer to hit the “share” button from our page.

Here is the direct link to register: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_D-rJUjRcSV2aGou7kY8AjQ

We look forward to seeing lots of Boilermakers logged in on Oct. 17!

Please let us know if you have questions, and thank you for your help promoting this event.
