    Hoffa Scholarship 2019

    The James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund awarded $1.4 million in scholarship
    awards to students in the U.S. and Canada this year. For the first time this included scholarships
    to assist with students attending training and vocational programs. Assisting the sons, daughters
    and financial dependents of Teamster members with their educational goals is a tradition
    that we are proud to continue.

    This year the James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund decided to have International
    Scholarship and Tuition Service (ISTS) administer the academic and vocational program
    awards for the Fund. ISTS is an experienced administrator for college scholarship funds across
    the country.

    The Fund’s website, www.jrhmsf.org , will continue to have the most up-to-date information
    about the online application for the Academic and Training and Vocational Programs
    scholarships. The application process for the programs is now open and we encourage the sons,
    daughters and financial dependents of members to apply.

    Sincerely,

    The Board of the James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund

    From the Desk of Secretary Treasurer Tom Quackenbush

    Dear Brothers and Sisters,

    As Secretary Treasurer, I am constantly gauging our financial health.  Everything we do is directly related to you, the membership, and that is why it is important to manage our finances with a strong sense of accountability.  Effectively and efficiently managing the Local’s finances so we can continue to provide the best opportunities for all members is my highest priority.

    As we hurtle towards the end of 2018 it is comforting to know that our income and expenses are well-balanced and because of that we certainly have plenty of financial options moving forward.  Despite this, we must always be cautious and not take our healthy financial position for granted by delving into frivolous ventures or making unnecessary expenditures. Sometimes as an organization we feel somewhat pulled in many different directions and that is to be expected because we are a diverse organization.  But it is those diversities that make us who we are and what we are financially committed to.

    So, while we will soon be closing our books for the year and working with auditors to ensure that our financial statements fairly and correctly represent our financial position, we will also be working on new programs that support our diverse membership and making sure they are being accomplished within an approved budget.

    I am proud of the work that is being done by our Local Union.  Please keep yourself informed so you can be proud too.  As always, I look forward to hearing from any member who has any questions, suggestions or comments about our financial health.
