IAMAW District 250 provided training for each Local Lodge representative to better communicate to their membership through their website, as well as to reach out to the youth and next generation of IAMAW members. The training was delivered by Frank Saptel from the Canadian Office.
The Training was held on October 23 – 25 at the District Lodge Office in Surrey BC. The three-day training was held at Northwest District 250 office, located in beautiful BC. This training was geared towards building the tools needed to keep our members updated with what is happening not only in their Local Lodge, District Lodge & Grand Lodge but also to highlight members that have helped serve the community, and various events and meetings that may be happening. Learning how to maneuver in WordPress, update information, short posts, along with videos and pictures are just a few of the tools we were trained on.
Frank gave special emphasis to regular communications to members.
Attending the training were
Cheryl Semonovitch, Secretary-Treasurer of DL 250;
Mike Ferns President, Gary Chalmers, Recording Secretary Local 550;
Chris Schreyer President, Local 456;
Craig Reimer, Recording Secretary Local 692;
