Because of concerns for the safety of our members during the COVID 19 pandemic, IBEW 1245 has been unable to safely hold unit meetings for most of 2020. We understand that our members still want to help their local communities and charities, but without Unit meetings there can be no motions to the Executive Board requesting donations through the IBEW 1245 Community Fund.
In an effort to help alleviate the extraordinary needs many in our communities face, the Executive Board will consider “informal requests” from Units for donations from the unit’s IBEW 1245 Community Fund that focus on helping communities recover from effects brought on by the COVID 19 pandemic.
The Executive Board will strongly consider donation requests that focus on aiding the economy of our local communities from the direct and indirect economic effects brought on by the pandemic. Please send all informal requests to your Business Representative.
The Board has previously allowed all unused 2020 funds to roll over to 2021.
