Welcome to the 39th IBEW International Convention in St. Louis, honoring our 125-year history and laying the foundation for our future.
Convening on Sept. 19, the Convention is the most important gathering of the IBEW and fulfills the mandate in our Constitution to choose our leaders, set and confirm our policies and renew the values at the heart of the world’s greatest union.
The 39th International Convention is also a homecoming, a time to look back to our founding here in 1891.
If you plan to attend, this website will provide valuable resources about the convention process. You will also find a checklist for what you need to bring, a schedule of events, the order and timing of votes as well as a calendar of the social events that have been planned.
Selection as a delegate to the Convention is an honor and responsibility. And this year, our convention happens with new executive leadership, a crucial election in the fall and unprecedented economic challenges and opportunities for organized labor. The officers and staff look forward to welcoming you to St. Louis.
