I finally get to interview my Favorite Electrician
I started my Electrical Inside Wireman apprenticeship in 1976. I completed to Journey level in 1980. I have worked in all aspects of the electrical field, residential, commercial and industrial and at many levels; apprentice, journeyman, steward, foreman and general foreman. I have taught part time in the apprenticeship program since 1980 and obtained my California Teachers Credential in 1981. I have worked as a business agent and dispatcher for IBEW Local 11 under two different Business Managers. In 1996 I transitioned full time to the Electrical Training Institute as Senior Instructor and in 2006 became the Outreach Director. In 2009 I was appointed and then elected, and re-elected in 2012, by the membership as Vice President of IBEW Local 11. I served six months as the Interim President.
I am active and involved with my union; I have participated in community outreach even before I started my apprenticeship in 1976. Since 1980 I have been an active member on the Long Beach Private Industry Council, School to Career Organization, the Youth Opportunities Organization and other local groups. I was co-founder of Electric Women in 1984 and Blue Collar Women in 2006; active tradeswomen support groups. I currently sit on a number of community, education and faith based advisory committees and serve as a Board member for the Foothill WIB, the Pacific Gateway WIB, the South Bay WIB, the ACE Mentoring program, the United Jobs Community Coalition and the PV Jobs Foundation.

The unemployment rate continues to improve, but there are still millions out of work, and there are over 3 million open jobs where employers are searching for workers with the right skills to fill them. Bridging this gap will require better attention to the “skills match”, increasing credentialing and certifications for adult learners, and giving K-12 students the tools needed to develop life-long learning habits and career knowledge. Lee Ramsayer is an Executive Vice President with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and a champion of work readiness and skills development. Join Ron Painter and Mr. Ramsayer on Wednesday, May 14 at 1:00 PM EDT for a lively conversation on new technologies, where Workforce Investment Boards (WIBs) should focus their credentialing efforts, and how to take work readiness to the next level.

Let's talk about bridging gaps amongst religion and faith in the workplace.
Today on the grill!
