Where We Worked

 Chart — Peterborough and area members by Federal Service.

In Summary:

We are challenged as a branch as:   

  1. We are spread out over a very large area.
  2. Only 50% of members have signed up for email notices.
  3. As an ageing group this impacts meeting attendance, comfort with technology and having energy for advocacy and social outings. 

 

A fall survey is planned.  We want to hear from you and profile further “Who We Are”.
