The Carpenter’s Forum

The Carpenter’s Forum magazine is published three times per year, delivered by mail in its all-inclusive form to tens of thousands of union carpenters.

The Carpenter’s Forum eMagazine mirrors the hard copy publication with a few added features:


  • Post-race interview with decathlete Zach Ziemek, who said of the Carpenters union that “…we both strive every day to be the best that we can be for the good of ourselves and the others around us.”
  • Carpenter volunteers erect the Sept. 11 Healing Field of Flags in West Dundee, Illinois.
  • A CPR demonstration using the rubber torso of the CPR Saves Lives Hands-Only CPR digital kiosk launched Dec. 8 by the American Heart Association and the Mid-America Carpenters Regional Council at Chicago’s McCormick Place.
