L-193 forms recruiting committee

[+]Enlarge

L-193 officers and volunteers have created a committee to seek new members who already have basic skills.

Group focuses on high schools, welding programs

LOCAL 193 (BALTIMORE) aims to put a spark in its recruiting efforts by going after those who already have an interest in welding — high school students in technical programs and those attending welding schools. The lodge formed a committee for that purpose last August.

L-193 BM-ST Ernie Dorsey said the lodge has recruited in those areas before but decided to raise its level of involvement to bolster its membership. “We’re looking for people who are not only interested in becoming Boilermaker apprentices but who already have some background in the type of skills they will need,” he said. “We are going out and meeting with instructors at Maryland schools — especially in the Baltimore area — and so far we’ve been very well received.”
