    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.
