Dear Affiliates,

We are thrilled to announce the official launch of the PASS (Preparing Apprentices with Supportive Services) Program, an initiative under the Northern Nevada Central Labor Council's Member Assistance Program. This program has been made possible through the generous contributions of Laborers Local 169 and retired Business Manager Skip Daly, along with a significant $50,000 grant from the State Contractors Board that NNACA recently received, half of which will be dedicated towards the MAP.

The PASS Program is a collaborative effort involving numerous apprenticeship coordinators and union leaders, and we are excited about the positive impact it will have on lowering entry barriers for apprentices in Northern Nevada. This program will further enhance our ability to provide meaningful support to apprentices facing financial challenges. We believe that the PASS Program will play a pivotal role in creating opportunities for registered union apprentices in Northern Nevada for years to come.

Thank you to everyone involved in bringing this initiative to fruition. Your dedication and collaboration have been instrumental in making the PASS Program a reality. We look forward to witnessing the positive impact it will have on the lives and careers of our apprentices.

For more details or to get involved, please contact Rob Benner, Wendy Colborne, or Michalle Hoehn at

In Solidarity,

Northern Nevada Central Labor Council
