We all know times have been trying and everyone’s lives have been affected in one way or another by the COVID-19 pandemic. The NextGen Committee at Local 258 IBEW’s sister Local in Port Coquitlam, Local 213, has come up with an innovative way to help keep many of us connected in these challenging times and invites IBEW members from across Canada who enjoy gaming to enter a team into the first IBEW 213 Cyber Games competition. It’s a great way to stay connected, keep competitive, have fun, win prizes, and safely socially distance at home. And it all goes live on June 20th!
Here’s what you need to know.
