District 1 Leadership Institute: Sub-area 1


As part of the District 1 Education Program, there are again three weeks scheduled for local union leadership and skill enhancement training at the USW Education Center at Linden Hall in Dawson, Pennsylvania.

District 1 is again excited to present several new subject matters and we continue our commitment of new and enhanced materials and information for our members. We welcome your continued attendance, input, participation and evaluations which are imperative for us to further develop and improve our Education Program so that we can best serve the membership.

The cost to the local union for each delegate is $550.00 which will cover each delegate’s room (based on double occupancy), meals and training materials. The remaining cost of the rooms and training is subsidized by District 1. All lost time and expenses, including travel, must be borne by the local union.

We must use double occupancy to help defray the cost and enable as many members’ participation as possible. If you want to room with a certain person, please mark that on the registration form.
