In 2010, IBEW Local 965 began recognizing members and/or retirees for giving back to our communities through volunteering. We have established the "Charlie Award", which is named in recognition of the first recipient, Charlie Wilhelm. Charlie inspired the need to recognize members giving back to our communities through his involvement with Habitat for Humanity and other charitable activities.
At the January 2013 Executive Board meeting, Ed Ullerich was chosen as this year's recipient. Ed is the new Unit 2 Chairperson and is a Line Technician out of Tomah. A picture will be posted soon.
We will be looking for nominations again next year. Be thinking about who you would like to nominate for the January 2014 Executive Board meeting. If you know of someone that should be considered, feel free to submit an application or contact the Union office. You are able to submit your own name for consideration.
