Registration open for 2019 ISO Conference

What happens in Vegas conference…makes ISO leaders stronger

WHAT HAPPENS AT the annual Industrial Sector Operations Conference in Las Vegas definitely doesn’t stay in Vegas. It goes home with participants and makes Boilermaker leaders — and their lodges — smarter and stronger. And registration is open for the 2019 ISO Conference, which will take place July 9-11 at the Mirage Hotel & Casino (visit http://www.boilermakers.org/ISO2019).

The conference includes large plenary sessions with informative and inspirational speakers, as well as break-out workshops that cover industry- and position-specific topics and a variety of general subjects. For example, participants in 2018 learned about everything from law to collective bargaining best practices to organizing and social media, and they heard from award-winning author Dan Clark. Plus, there’s also the opportunity to meet other Boilermaker leaders from across the United States and Canada.

“I was amazed at how organized and well planned it was,” says Gary Parrish, a Local 1073 (Cleveland) steward, who attended ISO for the first time in 2018. “It was a great experience. The classes were great, and people paid attention and asked questions.

“I’ve been a union man all my life, and the guys would come back from ISO talking about everything they had learned. My advice: If you want to be part of a union, you’ve got to get involved. If I have the chance, I’d go back [to the ISO Conference].”

THEY FOUND THEIR “kitsch” on Route 66, took the dam tour and had their vows renewed by Elvis. Read about the cross-country road trip that brought L-1073 (Cleveland) steward Gary Parrish and his wife Christine to the 2018 ISO Conference. https://boilermakers.org/Parrish
