Dear Sisters and Brothers:
The start of a new year is the perfect time to renew our commitment to the IBEW Code of Excellence (COE). When we demonstrate excellence on the job, at the local union, and in our communities, we tell people who we are as IBEW union members and leaders. That is why we continue to provide a quarterly COE newsletter, The IBEW SPARQ. The January 2020 edition of the newsletter can be found on the IBEW website at www.ibew.org. Look for the COE-SPARQ tab at the top of the page, and you can download any or all branch newsletters.
Each edition focuses on one the of the core values of the Code of Excellence: safety, professionalism, accountability, relationships, and quality. The topic for this edition is professionalism. This newsletter is a useful resource that can be used to educate our members, our customers, and even our communities. If your local union has a Code of Excellence success story to tell, contact the IBEW Media Department or the Education Department.
Please join me in sharing our story of IBEW excellence across all of our industries with everyone you know. Enjoy The IBEW SPARQ.
Lonnie R. Stephenson
