International Brotherhood of Boilermakers

Boilermakers LEAP Conference

A 51 year tradition of listening, learning, lobbying

For more than half a century, Boilermakers have attended annual conferences in the nation's capital to press our issues with Congress. These meetings teach us about politics and legislation — and they connect us with those who make vital decisions that impact our members, families and union.

Registration & Hotel

All attendees, both delegates and their guests, must register for the conference. You can make your Mayflower hotel reservation at the end of the registration process.

The Mayflower
1127 Connecticut Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20036

Register & Reserve

To reserve your hotel, or if you need to modify your reservation, please call Convention Services Unlimited (CSU), rather than the hotel, at 1-888-278-9886 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, ET).
