A. What specific strategies and techniques can Indiana's Building Trades Unions implement in high schools today to attract more aspiring apprentices?

B. Most building trades apprenticeships offer an associate’s degree upon completion of an apprenticeship. As a member of the iGen/Generation Z, does an associate’s degree provide extra value to an aspiring apprentice? Why or why not?" 
 
3. Each essay should be between 300 and 750 words in length, be typewritten, double-spaced, and  follow APA guidelines for formatting style.
4. Entries MUST include: a cover sheet with the student’s name, mailing address, e-mail address, name of university or college which they plan to attend, their relationship to a building trades union member, and the name of the local union of which that person is a member.

Important Notice

Apr 26, 2016 (14:18:50)

The International Pension Fund Board of Trustees have made changes to your IPF benefit.  You should have received a notice recently in the mail. "IPF RETIREMENT BLUEPRINT" - informing you of all the changes.

Please take the time to read through the 'NOTICE'.  It is very important to note one of the changes voted on by the IPF Board of Trustees was the changing of the 'NORMAL RETIREMENT AGE FROM 60 TO 64' (the benefit will be reduced by 8% each year from 60 - 64). 

These changes all 'TAKE EFFECT JUNE 1, 2016'.

If you have any questions, I encourage you to contact Mike Shelton at the IPF office at 1.888.880.8222.
