duties of the Examining Board shall be to examine
all applicants for membership to determine
their qualifications for the trade. They shall
examine such qualifications as provided in
Article XIX of the IBEW Constitution. This
section shall not apply to apprentices as covered
elsewhere in these bylaws.
2. The Board shall meet at least once
quarterly for the examination of applicants
when there are applicants to be examined. The
Board shall retain all records of examinations
given for at least two (2) years.
3. The Examiners shall furnish a report
on the results of all examinations to the Executive
Board and the Local Union.
Local unions are not required to have an Examining
Board, and this article should be deleted if it
is not absolutely necessary. The IBEW Constitution
provides for the Executive Board to investigate
applicants for membership. If no examinations are
given by the local union in conjunction with applications
for membership, there is no need for an Examining
Board. When the local union decides an Examining
Board is necessary, the three (3) sections in the
Pattern are required.
