Members from both our industries enjoyed getting to know one another at the 2014 Leadership Summit 

Over 80 member leaders from across Local 105 came together this past weekend at the Doubletree Hotel in Stapleton for our 2014 Leadership Summit.  The Summit is the first of its kind in many years at Local 105 and one which we hope to replicate.

“It was an awesome event,” said Connie Davies, an almost 8 year member with Kaiser. “Although I’m a steward and have attended steward trainings for years, the two days at the Summit taught me so much. Plus the energy in the room was great. I wish we could get folks that pumped up at our worksites!”
