WASHINGTON, Jan. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- In January 2020, the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers (BAC) welcomed former Secretary-Treasurer Timothy J. Driscoll as its new President following the retirement of James Boland

"I have every confidence in Tim's strong leadership, his excellent judgment, and his commitment to our Union and each of its members. BAC is in great hands and has a bright future," said Boland.

To serve alongside him on the Executive Board Driscoll appointed Robert Arnold, former National Director of Apprenticeship and Training at the International Masonry Training and Education Foundation (IMTEF), as Secretary-Treasurer.

Driscoll said of Arnold's appointment: "I have worked closely with Bob for many years on projects vital to the future of this Union. Bob's enthusiasm for education and training, his track record of welcoming innovation and promoting members from underrepresented backgrounds, and his overall dedication to BAC's members make him uniquely qualified for this moment in our Union's history." 

IMTEF, together with Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committees (JATCs) across the U.S. and Canada, provides apprenticeship training and lifelong learning in the trowel trades to BAC members. Effective February 1, 2020, IMTEF welcomes Anthony DiPerna, President of the Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers (BAC) Local 3 New York, as National Director of Apprenticeship and Training.
