Given the current state of COVID-19 we are unable to meet and hold events in person. However, challenges in life tend to lead to innovation. The NextGen committee from Local Union 213 wanted to find a way to bring everyone together during these times and build solidarity. They also wanted to find a way to give back and raise money for charity. The result is to host an International video games tournament titled, “IBEW Local 213 Cyber Games”. Teams from all Local Unions in the IBEW across all districts will compete for a charity of their choice. This event is tentatively scheduled for 2021. Please click HERE for more information
