December Update from SOAR President Bill Pienta

Wishing You a Safe Holiday Season; Looking Forward to 2022

Like most everyone, I’m itching for the day when everything is back to normal. With any luck, I’m hoping that will be next year because we’ve scheduled our 2022 SOAR Conference for August 5 and 6 at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV.

As you know, our International SOAR Conference always happens in conjunction to the USW’s International Convention, both of which had to be canceled in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

There are several items that I thought I should bring to your attention:

  1. The delegates to the SOAR Conference will elect the Officers and Executive Board members of SOAR for a term of three years.
  2. Chapters large enough to send delegates will be notified by mail.
  3. For those chapters planning on submitting resolutions to the conference, all resolutions must be received in the SOAR office in Pittsburgh, no later than July 1, 2022.

SOAR bylaws require we publish notice for this conference in our publications, so you will see more information about it beginning with this newsletter.

To all in the SOAR family, I hope you enjoy a safe and healthy holiday season; and get ready for what may be a very active year for SOAR.
