Please join us in beautiful Fredericton on Saturday October 29 and Sunday October 30 as we celebrate the IBEW 37 Training Trust Fund Conference! This is our first in-person conference since the Covid-19 pandemic. Join us to celebrate coming together again!

10 Reasons why YOU need to attend the 2022 TTF Conference:
  1. A selection of high quality break-out sessions
    Choose between six sessions with professional speakers from all over Canada to help enhance your skills.
  2. Inspiring keynote speakers
    Let our three highly qualified and dynamic keynote speakers inspire and motivate you all weekend… and beyond!
  3. Outstanding learning and development opportunity
    Not only will you leave feeling totally inspired, but you’ll also gain new tools to add to your toolbox to reconnect, renew, and refocus at work and at home!
  4. Networking and sharing
    Meet and network with members from all parts of the company! We have members attend this conference from every nook and cranny of the province.
  5. Family friendly!
    Bring the whole family! We have a kids’ program for children aged 5-12 where they’re completely supervised by childcare professionals all weekend. AND we encourage you to bring a partner, friend, or relative, if you want!. Guests are subject to a small fee of $75 for the entire weekend, giving them full access to all conference activities.
  6. Expect to be well-fed AND entertained!
    After a delicious meal provided by the Delta Fredericton, this year we will have Hypnotist Jason Cyrus in the house to provide a hysterical and electrifying show.
  7. PRIZES?!
    You’ll have the opportunity to win AMAZING prizes sponsored by the IBEW 37 Health, Wellness, and Benefits Committee. Prizes are valued at $150-250 each and there are 15-20 of them to go around. Not to mention that if you register within the early bird time frame and/or are a brand-new conference attendee, you will be automatically entered into a draw for an iPad. Learn more about prizes here.
  8. Zero Cost to Members
    Members already contribute to the Training Trust Fund, so there is no registration fee or other fees associated with attending the conference (unless you bring a guest, as mentioned above). You’ll also be reimbursed (subject to our Travel Policy guidelines) for your accommodations, mileage, and meals if applicable.
  9. A *NEW* NextGen event
    There will be a NextGen event held during our conference for all our NextGen members (35 years and under). Stay tuned for details.
  10. The option to attend digitally
    Can’t make it in-person? No worries! You can participate in the conference digitally this year. Learn more here.
Who should attend?

YOU! Any IBEW 37 member that pays into the Training Trust Fund and is looking for a fun-filled weekend. All members are also encouraged to bring a guest (whether that’s a partner, friend, or family member) for a small fee ($75.00) that covers meals and entertainment.

Nervous about attending a new event?

No problem! We understand that attending events that you’re unfamiliar with can be intimidating. We encourage you to bring along a co-worker, family member, or friend if you need some support getting out of your comfort zone. We promise it’s worth it! If you can’t attend you can also participate in the digital option.

Still not sure? Here’s what IBEW members had to say about last year’s conference:

“It was my second TTF conference, I think they are great, and I wish I would have attended in previous years!”

– Michelle Taylor-Danks, Coleson Cove Generating Station

“If you have never attended what are you waiting for? It’s a free getaway and you get to learn a little something along the way. Hands down a wonderful and truly awesome experience! See you next year.”
– Bonnie Mlinarich, Head Office

“This was my first one and I am trying to figure out why I waited so long to attend one. It was great to meet other members of our union and I would definitely encourage others to attend as it is a great chance to learn and play.”
– Ron Howard, Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station

“First time participating and will sure be back next year. Hope when I retire, I am invited by my peers as a guest.”
– Josanne Cormier, Moncton

“Not too many things in life are free but this conference is basically that. Allows a stress-free learning environment for your family… no strings attached.”
– Scott McNeill, Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station

“It was my first year attending the conference and I couldn’t have been more impressed! Everything was great and will be attending them in the future.”
– Sam Driscoll, Head Office
