330 Executive Board Plans for the Future
On May 1, Dominic Romanazzi, newly elected president of Teamsters Local 330, sponsored an executive board-training program in Elgin, Illinois. Education Department Program Manager Sally Payne conducted the seminar.
Local 330’s executive board explored effective ways to build membership solidarity and participation through an open and enlightening discussion.
The training program focused on planning for the future and duties and responsibilities of the executive board members, who represent a cross section of Teamsters in industries from building and construction trades to public sector. The seminar also highlighted the guidelines for officers as contained in the Teamsters Constitution, the local’s bylaws and the Landrum-Griffin Act.
Romanazzi believes that education is the first step in building a strong and growing local union.
“I highly recommend that all local unions utilize the programs offered by the Education Department,” Romanazzi said. “They not only provide us with the necessary information to do the job, but they are inspiring as well.”
"It’s exciting to see the newly elected leadership of Teamsters Local 330 working as a team and planning for the future growth and power of the local membership," Payne said.
The Teamsters Education Department conducts more than 125 field programs each year throughout the United States and Canada, along with its showcase leadership program, the Teamsters Leadership Academy. Leadership programming and strategic planning for local union executive boards, officers and agents are conducted upon request.
