Registration continues for BLET Legislative Representatives training class in July

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio, March 12 ó Classroom slots are still available for the BLET Education & Training Departmentís training class for BLET Division Legislative Representatives, which will be held in Washington, D.C. from July 10-12, 2018.

Held in conjunction with the BLETís National Legislative Office, the class will take place at the International Brotherhood of Teamsters headquarters. Classroom training begins at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, July 10, and will conclude on Wednesday, July 11. Please arrange your travel to arrive on Monday, July 9, and to depart on Friday, July 13.

Upon completion of the classroom training, attendees will participate in a full day of lobbying on Capitol Hill on Thursday, July 12.

During this class, Congress will be in session for the last time prior to their recess and the national elections. This would be a good time to come to Washington and assist the BLET in relaying the issues and concerns affecting our organization.

Attendees must register for the LR Class through the BLET website at: http://www.ble-t.org/lr.

For more information, please contact Jason Wright, Special Representative and Director of the BLET Education and Training Department: office, (216) 241-2630, ext. 247; cell, (216) 296-4447; or email wright@ble-t.org.
