Convention Delegates
Make History, Renew Commitments in Chicago

International President Lonnie R. Stephenson closed the 40th IBEW International Convention in Chicago on May 13, an historic occasion marked by a visit from the sitting president of the United States and the election of the first woman to international office.

The Convention was a celebration of working-class power. Delegates took stock of a string of political, organizing, and public relations victories that have opened extraordinary possibilities for the brotherhood.

Day after day, there were reminders of the importance of taking challenges head-on, the rewards for working families when their efforts succeed and the steep costs when they fail.

It was also a time to rebuild bonds that had been stretched thin by the years-long public health crisis brought on by COVID-19.

The Convention began with a weekend of volunteering and good times.

A day of service brought hundreds of IBEW brothers and sisters to clean up parks around the city and a picnic and concert brought everyone to the iconic Soldier Field on the Lake Michigan waterfront and nearby Wintrust Arena. read_more
