Boilermakers LEAP Conference
A 51 year tradition of listening, learning, lobbying
April 14 - 17, 2019
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.
With the new congressional calendar confirmed for 2019, unfortunately most members will be out the week of our 2019 Conference. Please know that this is always a risk with a new Congress when we need to commit to hotel dates two years in advance. Fortunately it has been several years since we last had this occur. Please make your Hill appointments with staff for that week. We look forward to seeing you in April and please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
