This is the official call for the 39th International Convention of the Coalition
of Black Trade Unionists, May 26-31, 2010 in Detroit, Michigan. We have a
lot to
be thankful for this past year. The theme for this convention  "Yesterday's

Vision - Tomorrow's Realities
".
           
(read
"Power wins Again")

You have done some outstanding things this year and CBTU would like to thank you all for your
commitment and dedication. Your community efforts have been recognized
across
the country. You have helped some 40 students further their education on
the
national and local level. You have participated in HIV/AIDS and Sickle
Cell
workshops and awareness programs in your communities to bring
understanding of
how these diseases are wreaking havoc among us. You have sponsored
back-to-school programs to help equip young students with the
necessities needed
to have a successful and meaningful school experience such as meals and
supplies. There were programs from Canada to Florida, California to
Maryland and
points in between. CBTU is very proud of our chapters and members and
extremely
proud of the positions taken to strengthen our ties to the local
communities.

While you certainly deserve this praise, there is still plenty left to be
accomplished. CBTU will be 40 years old next year. That's right "forty".

We have to put the effort into organizing and recruiting new members
into the
fold to have another 40 years. This institution has fought many battles,
been in
the front on controversial issues, supported and been involved with
causes in
accordance with our mission statement. But, as frequently stated, there
is no
time to rest. There are still many causes to embrace many battles to
fight,
communities to be organized, ideas to bring to fruition, students to
help, and
efforts are under way to accomplish all of these.

We have to communicate more frequently and openly than usual. There are ideas and programs that
can be
shared between members, chapters and leaders. The national office is
working to
establish a forum on the website to promote and share ideas among
members,
chapters and leaders. With this platform, information can flow easily.

CBTU's visions of yesterday can be realized with dedication, hard work, and
continued efforts. Those visions will be our realities tomorrow. United,
it can
all be done and will be done. Let us prepare for every tomorrow as if it
were
today.

The Renaissance Hotel is accepting reservations for this upcoming convention as you read this. There is a link on the CBTU web page that
will
direct you to the official website for reservations.

Looking forward to seeing you in Detroit.

 

In Solidarity,

William Lucy
