April 1-2 marked IBEW Local 37’s annual Training Trust Fund Conference, an event that has taken place each year since 2011. This year’s conference at the Delta in Fredericton, NB, Canada, marked a significant milestone for the local in that it was the official launch for Local 37 of the IBEW Code of Excellence. Approximately 135 people attended the event, which was themed “Celebrating Excellence.”
The conference opened with internationally renowned keynote speaker Buhle Dlamini, who motivated and inspired participants to unleash their greatness. There were 15 breakout sessions to choose from, all themed around achieving excellence in every skill-set from communications and conflict resolution, to understanding emotional intelligence and how to manage stress. April 1 closed with entertainment from local comedian James Mullinger, who left everyone in stitches.
Participants received conference swag bags (UFCW 215-T), which included a Code of Excellence T-shirt (USW 9153). Members were encouraged to wear the shirt on the last day of the event to show their IBEW pride and commitment to excellence while listening to the closing keynote address by adventure seeker and athlete Will Gadd.
The 2017 IBEW Local 37 Training Trust Fund Conference was a great success and we look forward to the next one!
