NYCDCC’s New Website Emphasizes Goals of Transparency and Openness
New York-- The New York City & Vicinity District Council of Carpenters (NYCDCC) on Friday launched a new and improved website. Executive Secretary-Treasurer Michael Bilello wants members to feel included and involved in their union and stated that the website redesign is an important first step in that process.
“It’s a new day at the District Council,” Bilello said. “We are dedicated to transparency and we are looking at using cutting-edge tools to keep our members and the public informed. This site is just the beginning.”
With so much going on at the council in the last few months, such as new leadership, the renegotiation of five contracts and many more improvements and changes, it is essential that the council have this more efficient means of keeping the public and its members informed.
The new website creates a community space for the council to share information, take suggestions and get the membership involved. It features a more organized home page that provides a direct link to NYCDCC information with an added search feature. The new “Press Room” will also house the latest press releases, political and community announcements as well as statements and quotes from our officers. Members will be able to access their own specific pages and features and will have an opportunity to make their voices heard with our “Letter to the Editor” section. Visitors to nycdistrictcouncil.com will now be able to enjoy a faster, more user-friendly experience in finding out the latest news and information at the NYCDCC.
All are encouraged to visit the nycdistrictcouncil.com home page to find the latest news, events and photos along with messages from the NYCDCC.
Stay tuned to nycdistrictcouncil.com for many important updates to come.
With more than 25,000 members in eight locals, the New York City and Vicinity District Council of Carpenters is one of the largest, most powerful trade unions in the construction industry.
