Local 1508

Welcome to YOUR Local 1508 Website

We wanted to take this time to welcome you to the new Local 1508 website. This site was created to provide our members with some basic and useful information on what is going on with the local, DC37 and AFSCME. It is a work in progress and this is all new to us so feel free to contact us with any ideas, information our items you feel should be added to this site. Just hit the Contact Us button under the Your Board drop down window and send us an e-mail with any thoughts or ideas.

Let us start by saying that this is a free site provided by DC 37 and AFSCME.. The only cost involved in this whole project was to purchase a domain name (www.local1508.com) which makes the site easier to remember. That cost was less than $10 for the first 3 years of service. It has been approximately $15 per year after that. There is also a link to our site from the DC37 Website under About DC37, then Locals and then Local 1508.

We would like to thank the DC 37 Communications Department, especially Molly Charboneau, for they have been extremely helpful and patient in helping us get this site started. We cannot thank them enough for the assistance they have given us.

We would also like to thank AFSCME for providing the training and all of the templates and help needed in setting up this site. Without all of their assistance and help we would not have been able to even get this site off of the ground.

So please take a look around, enjoy the site and free to hit the Contact Us button under the Your Board drop down window and send us an e-mail to give us your input on what you feel we need to add to the site to maximize it's potential.
