New Members’ Information Evening 2015 – Update

20 January 2015  |  News  |  ,

Tuesday 20th January 2015. Thank you to everyone who contacted us regarding the WILSAR information evening that we held on Wednesday 14th January 2015.

We had a great evening with nearly 30 people attending and many others who were unable to attend expressing an interest in joining us. We had one or two technical problems to overcome after which the evening went well with some very good questions being asked. It was great to meet so many people who were all keen to find out more about WILSAR, many of whom will now be attending training sessions before taking their course — we look forward to welcoming them as members in March.

Unfortunately, we have only a certain number of places available when we recruit and it not always possible to invite everyone to join. We are very grateful to ALL those who contacted us offering their time and assistance and we sincerely hope that if we are not able to invite you to join us at this time you will still wish to join us when we next recruit.
