Last evening at the September 3, 2019 meeting of the Local 1049 Executive Board, President Conklin advised the Board, in writing, that he was resigning as President effective immediately. President Conklin recommended Vice President James Cooper as his replacement. The Board unanimously agreed. The Executive Board also unanimously voted Brother Charles Doyle to the position of Vice President.
President Emeritus Ed Conklin has proven himself to be a true-blue union man throughout his life. He has dedicated 39 years as an IBEW Local 1049 Member, Executive Board Member and Officer to nothing but the improvement of the lives of our membership. It has been my privilege to call him my friend and union brother.
I welcome our newly appointed President Jim Cooper and Vice President Chuck Doyle and extend my best wishes for a successful presidency and vice presidency.
