IBEW organizer appointed to convention center board

VANCOUVER — Bob Carroll, an organizer for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 48, has been appointed to the Vancouver Public Facilities District (PFD) board of directors.

The PFD was created by the Vancouver City Council as a municipal corporation authorized to acquire, construct, own, remodel, maintain, equip, re-equip, repair, finance, and operate one or more “regional centers,” such as the City’s Convention Center.

The five-member PFD board is appointed by the City Council. Members are selected based upon recommendations from local organizations that include local economic development organizations, local labor councils, the Vancouver Chamber of Commerce, and at-large.

All terms are four years.

Carroll is a labor representative on the board. He succeeds Ed Barnes, a retired business manager of IBEW Local 48, who has served the limit of two terms on the board.
