Local 1928 NextGen was in the April edition of the NextGen newsletter. Sarah Campbell sent it out to members. We will work on getting members of this committee on the mail list.

Ryan MacDonald has added a NextGen tab to the 1928 website. Action: Ryan MacDonald our meeting minutes need to be added. Kate will also email a Cooperators Insurance communication that needs to be added as well.


Kate Walsh is attending our September meeting.

IBEW Code of Excellence: Jim Sponagle has asked NextGen to work on an initiative to build a Code of Excellence presentation to roll out to NSP. This will be added to our September agenda to discuss.

Mike Perry has shared our NextGen poster and our ball tournament poster with Unit 9. Still no interest from them or from PEI members.

Unit meeting attendance:

  • Considered changing meeting times to better accommodate members.
  • Discussed leaving this initiative for now. Hoping meeting attendance will increase as we work harder to get people more active and involved.
  • Consider making meeting attendance mandatory for Apprentices- suggestion 6 per year.
