Petroleum Industry transition meeting

We had the meeting between our members and the Petroleum industry yesterday. It was well attended by about 65 members of the two locals and was about 4 hours long. I got good feedback from members that attended and would be interested in what members I didn’t get a chance to talk to thought about the way it went.

Did it work for you?

Would you like us to do more of this kind of work?

What did you like or not like?

I would love to have some feedback on this site? Please leave comments.

I plan on setting up another page in the near future on employment. It will be  a place people can share where they are working, what worked for them, how they found work ect. I know alot of members are working out of town and think this would be a good tool for getting members work!
