Message from President Allen

On August 11, 2019 some of our members took a roundtrip motorcycle ride from the ADC headquarters to Sycamore, Illinois.  It was a beautiful day and a good time!

On March 24, 2019, the Officers and Tile Setter membership celebrated their 100-year affiliation with the Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers!

International President James Boland was there to congratulate the hundreds in attendance. Posted are some of the pictures of the celebration.

On October 30, 2018, nominations for the office of President, Secretary-Treasurer, and three Executive Vice Presidents were presented to the ADC membership.

All current Officers were unanimously re-elected, with no opposition.

President Allen thanked the membership for their support and promised to continue working for better wages and benefits for each and every member.
