IBEW Local 1837 Relocates NH Office to Manchester
The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 1837, which represents over 1,600 members throughout Maine and New Hampshire, relocated its New Hampshire office from Dover to Manchester in February 2023. The local will continue to maintain its primary office in Central Maine near Augusta.
IBEW Local 1837's previous office in Dover, New Hampshire, had served as a hub for the organization's operations for many years. However, this new office at 84 Bay Street, which is situated on the first floor of a historic property built in the 1880’s, is more centrally located for IBEW Local 1837's members in the Granite State. Leaders believe this relocation will make it easier for members to access the office and attend meetings, thereby strengthening the overall operations of the local.
"We have been able to host a greater number of in-person meetings, and the office is now more accessible to both existing members and potential members," said Business Representative Kitty Kilroy.
The recent move is also more convenient for staff as it reduces daily commute time, resulting in less money spent on gas and diminished wear and tear on vehicles.
"The new location has significantly improved efficiency," Kilroy added. "The commute time for both Business Manager Tony Sapienza and me has been reduced from a 2-hour round trip commute to less than 30 minutes round trip each day, which has had a positive impact on our productivity."
