On April 13-15, 2018, we are holding the first Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters’ (NRCC) Sisters in the Brotherhood “Leading the Way” Conference in Edison, NJ. At the conference, hundreds of women carpenters will gather for a weekend of education, recognition and fellowship. Along with women carpenters, attendees will include NRCC executive board members/staff, local organizations and local/State elected officials.
Attendees of the conference will have the opportunity to go to workshops covering a range of topics such as:
- Organizing 101
- Motherhood in the Sisterhood
- Union Activism
- Social Media Training
- Becoming a Union Leader and more.
During the conference, each Local will have the opportunity to celebrate and highlight 1 pioneer Sister who has: been a member for over 25 years; dedicated to mentoring her fellow Sisters; a Sister who is active in her Local and in good standing.
