District 11 Women of Steel Conference


Click here to download the conference call letter as a PDF.

Due to the lingering uncertainty of gathering in a large group with COVID, we have changed the dates of our Women’s Conference from June 24-26, 2021, to the dates of August 26-28, 2021. We hope that by August most of those who will be attending the Conference will be vaccinated and we can hold the conference safely. 

There is no limit to the number of delegates a local can send to this conference nor is attendance restricted to women only. We would encourage you, however, to seek out female members who exhibit activism and afford them the opportunity to develop their potential as active union members.
