PR Log (Press Release) – Mar 09, 2010 – Members of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters are gathering at the International Training Center in Las Vegas, Nevada June 17 – 20, 2010. All women carpenters are urged to request sponsorship from their local unions to attend. The last day to register is April 30, 2010.

This conference is a siren call for women to get more involved in their local union. Conference workshops will include strategies to increase women’s voices in local and national politics. It will be the third conference for women carpenters organized by the United Brotherhood of Carpenters, in effort to organize, educate, and provide Union Leadership Workshops to Sister Members.

NYCDCC Women’s Committee, NYC Chapter of SIB, launches their new website

www.unionwomencarpenters.comThe New York City District Council of Carpenters Women’s Committee is New York‘s chapter of the international “Sisters in the Brotherhood.” The Women’s Committee meets on a quarterly basis to promote a network of active sisters within the Union.

The NYCDCC Women’s Committee is an integral part of the NYCDCC, providing a forum for women in the New York carpenters union to share, support and learn from each other’s experiences, to use that knowledge to promote growth on both personal and professional levels and to become more actively involved at all levels.

The NYCDCC Women’s Committee are the trail blazers. Early on, during the formation of Sisters In The Brotherhood in 2002, by the United Brotherhood of Carpenters, NYCDCC Women’s Committee helped to form the SIB mission statement, leadership structure, objectives, and activities, that are used as a model for Women’s Committees throughout the UBC.

The newly launched website, is a comprehensive showcase of the directives of the NYCDCC Women’s Committee. Sisters In The Brotherhood takes pride in the accomplishments of our sisters throughout the UBC, and are happy to share our accomplishments with the nation!
