Important deadline for 2014 BLET Third National Convention

CLEVELAND, July 25 — Delegates, visitors and other guests planning to attend the Third National Convention of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET) later this year are advised that hotel reservations must be made by 5 p.m. PDT on August 21, 2014. The convention will be held at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. After that deadline passes, all guest rooms in the BLET block will be returned to the Rio for re-sale and the BLET will no longer be able to guarantee room availability. Additionally, rooms that may be available after that date cannot be booked with the BLET discounted convention rate.

In early July, the BLET National Division launched a 2014 convention website to help with the registration process, which can be found here: http://www.ble-t.org/convention/.

Finally, delegates and BLET Secretary-Treasurers are reminded that credentials must be signed and returned to the National Division no later than Friday, August 1, 2014. Delegate kits were mailed in early June.

The BLET’s Third National Convention will convene at the Rio in Las Vegas from Monday, September 29, 2014, through Thursday, October 2, 2014. Delegate registration begins on Sunday, September 28. Approximately 500 delegates will represent nearly 38,000 active locomotive engineers and trainmen throughout the United States. They will be charged with nominating candidates for National Division office, analyzing and voting on changes to the Brotherhood’s bylaws, and various other important duties.
