SIXTEEN MEMBERS FROM 10 Boilermaker lodges traveled to Kansas City, Missouri, Jan. 8-11 to attend a project management training class sponsored by MOST, the Boilermakers' Mobilization, Optimization, Stabilization and Training Fund. The class, held at the Hilton near Kansas City International Airport, teaches Boilermakers to take leadership roles in managing multi-craft projects and to make decisions that benefit the owner, the contractor and the union.
