Effective December 2014, there will no longer be a year end closeout of the vacation fund. As a result, your funds will not freeze in December and will be available to you during the holidays and all throughout the year. Vacation withdrawal requests require a 24 hour notice and requests must be made by the member and signed for by the member.


Message from Edwin D. Hill, International President

This year, the IBEW held its first class to assist those in our membership who have an inclination to become employers in the electrical contracting business for a number of years, and the attendees thought it was a great success.  The second course of the IBEW electrical contractor training program, IBEW Market-Driven Contracting  will be held on February 22-28, 2015, at the IUPAT Residence Suites & Conference Center in Hanover, Maryland.  The program provides members with the skills and support they need to start their own company.  The class starts on Sunday evening and concludes on Saturday at noon.  The cost per attendee is $1,000 per week for a total of $2,000.00.  Included is the cost of food and lodging at the IUPAT Conference Center. Travel is the responsibility of each attendee.
