THEN
RESOLVE TO BE A LEADER IN 2019

Foreman Meetings were changed to Leadership Meetings last month in order to include and develop more types of leaders in our Locals and industry. Response to the change has been overwhelming, with twice as many people participating as in the past.

Meeting spotlight and challenge: Nearly 30 members attended the Hermantown Leadership Meeting and 14 signed up to be mentors in the Council's mentoring program. Great work, Hermantown! Which locations can get more attendees and mentors in February?

Meetings will be held in February, May and August in 2019. Check with your Local for meeting dates and times.
NOW
CELEBRATE NATIONAL MENTORING MONTH

Whether you consider yourself a mentor or not, you've likely mentored someone before. Mentoring is as simple as offering your experience and guidance to help less experienced members navigate the Union and the construction industry.

This January, we're recognizing mentors and the important role they play in developing talent and keeping our Union strong.
