BLET delegates can now check eligibility status online

CLEVELAND, August 7 — The BLET National Division is making it easier for delegates to track their eligibility status for attendance at the upcoming Third National Convention, which begins in Las Vegas next month.

In order to be seated at the convention, Divisions must submit their delegate’s credentials — bearing the signatures of the Division President and the Division Secretary-Treasurer — to the National Division and each Division must be square on the books up to and including its July 2014 membership and financial reports. The delegate page at www.ble-t.org/convention now provides a secure area that allows delegates to check on the status of both.

To log in, delegates can use the same username and password used for logging into the Members’ Area of the BLET National Division website. If you do not have a username and password, you can sign up for one here: www.ble-t.org/signup.asp.

When a delegate logs in to the new secure area of the delegate page, he or she will be advised whether the National Division has received their credentials and will also advise regarding the status of his/her Division’s financial report for July 2014. Delegates also are provided with contact information to request assistance from the National Division if there is a discrepancy in either status.

The BLET’s Third National Convention will convene at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino 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 over 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.
