In a year of unexpected challenges, the 34th Consolidated Convention adapted to meet despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Delegates convened online July 21, 2021, via a virtual convention platform, broadcast from Quince Imaging studios in Sterling, Virginia, to conduct the business of the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers.
At the event’s conclusion near 12:15 a.m. Eastern, International President Newton B. Jones thanked Delegates for their patience and understanding navigating a new and different convention experience on behalf of their local lodges and the union.
“I want to thank you all for staying with us in this unusual convention and performing in an exemplary fashion throughout the event,” he said. “Everyone worked in the best interest of our union and the members we serve. All our committees did their jobs to the very best of their abilities and with all the heart and care you would expect of them.”
