IBEW Has Talent Contest

January 6, 2011

Dear Sisters and Brothers:

In addition to our skills on the job, many among us have other talents that deserve to be spotlighted.  As we plan for our 38th International Convention to be held in Vancouver, British Columbia, in September 2011, we want to make 2011 a year to celebrate the many things our members do, leading up to the big event in Canada.

And so we initiated IBEW Has Talent (IHT).
