Wow, the election, Mobile, and Thanksgiving -- I’m exhausted!
I hope everyone had a great time in Mobile. I want to thank you all for your participation. We could not have had a successful conference without everyone’s help and interaction. I hope that you were able to take back to your sites some useful information to use and share with your members.
Of course, one of our big follow-ups will be putting together a committee and planning for the new Education Week. We will start planning that shortly after the first of the year.
The conference survey is available online and we would appreciate any feedback, good and bad. We value your input and strive to improve every conference.
For those who couldn’t attend, all the presentations will be available on our website. And some already are.
We were also proud to announce that Mike McCormick and E.J. Black from USW/AK Steel-Ashland were awarded the Lynn Williams Award. What they have done since the probable shutdown of their plant has been nothing short of amazing.
Finally, on a sad note, David Austin passed away last week. David was the Coordinator at USW/Goodyear-Danville. He was an excellent coordinator and will be missed greatly. Our condolences go out to David’s family, friends and co-workers.
