IKORCC Sends 50 Members to 2022 Sisters in the Brotherhood Conference/in Diversity, News, Sisters /by Hannah Erwin
In August 2022, the Indiana Kentucky Ohio Regional Council of Carpenters (IKORCC) sent 50 Sisters in the Brotherhood (SIB) to the United Brotherhood of Carpenters (UBC) International Training Center for the 2022 International Sisters Conference.
The theme of this year’s conference was “Seize The Opportunity” – a call to action for attendees to get involved locally, regionally, and internationally in growing our diversity and union strength. Programming included motivational guest speakers, U.S. and Canadian diversity labor officials, and several workshops to directly touch on the unique challenges for UBC SIBs. The four-day event was full of networking opportunities and training for members ranging from apprentice to seasoned carpenters, millwrights, and industrial members. Read more

Few people have left the impact on the Indiana/Kentucky/Ohio Regional Council of Carpenters as Don Sherry did. Don Sherry tragically passed away in 2017. His list of accomplishments is vast, and his impact on our union is unprecedented.
Don Sherry passionately served the Indiana/Kentucky/Ohio Regional Council of Carpenters for nearly 20 years as a business representative and Director of Organizing. He was the President of Carpenters Local 175 and a dedicated advocate for workers rights and unions. Colleagues said his dedication to this organization was second to none.
To honor his legacy, the IKORCC gives the Don Sherry Achievement Award annually.
To honor Don’s service and dedication, each year since his passing the IKORCC has given The Don Sherry Achievement Award. The award recognizes a rank-and-file member who has gone above and beyond in their service on the job site, with contractors, in MAC meetings (Member Action Committee), and in their community. In addition to giving an award in his honor, IKORCC delegates raise money each year during their annual conference and donate the proceeds to the Diabetes Foundation in Don Sherry’s honor.
Recipients of the Don Sherry Achievement Award include:
2018 – Glenn Downs, Local 599
2019 – Raymond Poer, Local 599
2020 – Cory Hudson, Local 285
2021 – Bobby Miller, Local 357
2022 – Travis Williams, Local 1005
