Consolidated Convention

Every five years, the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers holds a Consolidated Convention to elect International officers and determine the course of the union over the next five years. Local lodges elect delegates to represent their interests at the convention.

So that every lodge can be represented, the Constitution requires the International to reimburse each lodge for the transportation costs of one delegate, who votes with the full force of the entire lodge membership. The lodge may send additional delegates at their own expense. District lodges and councils also send delegates to the convention.

Delegates to the Consolidated Convention have an awesome responsibility. Not only do they elect the International officers who will serve for the next five years, but they also read and hear all resolutions brought before the convention. Any changes to the Constitution must be passed at the Convention by a majority vote of the delegates present.
