Lately we’ve had Georgia on our mind. Allison, that is.

A friend to all of us, the longtime coordinator from USW/U.S. Steel-Great Lakes retired at the end of 2017. We wish her nothing but the best in retirement, but are sad to see her go.

Happy New Year to everyone.

It’s been an … interesting … last month of 2017 and first month of 2018 so far for us, to say the least.

While we may be in the primetime of summer, we also all know that it won’t be too long until the kids head back to school.

That also means that our second 2017 ICD Learning Summit – Milwaukee -- is right around the corner.

Sometimes all the pieces just fall right into place. 

How fitting it is that the day after we celebrate our nation's independence we are able to announce that our 2018 national conference will be held in the city that started it all ... Philadelphia!

As you probably know, L.O.W. is an opportunity for all of us to aggressively showcase all the great things that Career Development has available for Steelworkers.

It doesn't seem that long ago that we wrapped up in Mobile, but since then we have been busy brainstorming the 2017 Learning Summits. And that's not fake news.

With the locations, dates and hotels all settled, the Learning Summits are now open for registration.

Last week Korey and I visited the USW/U.S. Steel – Granite City program. It was my first time visiting the program and it was a very impressive tour! I want to thank USW Local 1899 president Dan Simmons and Coordinator Marshall McElroy for taking the time out to show us around.

One of the many highlights of the 2016 ICD National Conference -- and always one of the highlights of our year -- was the drawing at random of the 10 winners of the Tino Fulimeni Memorial Scholarship.

The 2016 ICD National Conference … we’ve got an app for that!

You can now, figuratively, hold the 2016 ICD National Conference in the palm of your hand.

And the winner is … USW/ArcelorMittal-I/N Tek & I/N Kote!!

If you were trying to be the first ICD program to submit your video to us for showcase at the ICD National Conference in Mobile, I have some bad news and some more bad news.
