It's easy to find out where and when the meetings are taking place, and the results. Just go to www.ibtvote.org and follow the links:

Written Nominations Permitted: ­ Remember, you can nominate, second and accept a nomination in writing instead of actually attending the nomination meeting. Please consult the nomination notice you received in the mail or Article II, § 5 of the Rules for the 2005-2006 IBT International Union Delegate and Officer Election (" 2006 Rules"), available on our website, for a complete description of how to nominate, second and accept a nomination in writing.

Correct Date for the International Convention: ­ The 27th IBT International Convention will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada on June 26-30, 2006. The Timetable of Events published in the erroneously states June 25-29, 2006 as the dates for the 27th IBT International Convention. Disregard that printed date and write the correct date for the convention in your booklet or other copy of the 2006 Rules.
