    Assistant Business Manager

    Dillon Gorman
    I started with Alliant Energy & IBEW Local 204 in 2010 on the Iowa Property at the age of 19. Originally being from Mosinee, WI my heart was still back in the badger state. After a year and a half in Iowa I transferred back to Wisconsin after accepting a job as a Service Worker in Mauston, WI and then became a member of IBEW Local 965. Getting an apprenticeship was my main goal out of High School so I stuck to that path and found my opportunity as a Large Gas Metering Specialist & Regulation Technician in 2013, and In September of 2015 I finished the apprenticeship to become a journeyman and took the position in Baraboo, WI where I live now. As of April 1st 2017 I started my new career as the Assistant Business Manager/Organizer for IBEW Local 965. I wouldn't be where I am today without the IBEW, and I'm proud to accept this position and help make this great union even stronger.

I am a member of OPEIU Local 39 and currently serve as their treasurer.  I grew up in Spring Green and I now live in Mount Horeb.

    Recording Secretary

    I started with Alliant Energy & Local IBEW 965 at the call center in Madison January of 2012.  In September of 2012 I took a position at our Janesville Dispatch office as a dispatcher.  I loved my job there but wanted to be in the field more and took an Engineering Tech apprenticeship position in February of 2014.  In March of 2017 I completed the apprenticeship and now am a journeyman Engineering Tech for Beloit.   As soon as I finished my apprenticeship I joined the RENEW committee and have been active in that since.  In September I became the Recording secretary and hold that position to date.  My newest involvement in the union is as chair of the newly formed Women's Committee with Holly Kaiser.  My personal goal is to get younger people and more women involved in the union.  We all are the future of our union.
