Re: Member App Training - An Application to assist with Member-to-Member (M2M) and Worksite Audits

Stewards and Executive members in Area 02 are invited to attend a special training session on the new application MiniVan. This is an application that will allow Stewards and Executive members the ability to update information for members directly into our database from your iPhone or Android device. Having this ability will assist Stewards and Executive members in your work when conducting Member-2-Member campaigns as well as worksite audits.

Those registering to participate should bring their own iPhone or Android device to the training. If you do not have one, please note this on your registration so that we can make arrangements to have devices provided.

In addition to those registering for Courtenay or Powell River, stewards and executive officers will also be having a session on "Membership Orientation", "Steward Administration" and a Q&A session.

Lunch is NOT provided, but you will be given ample time to attend lunch outside the office and your meal can be expensed.

Sessions commence at 9:00 a.m. and end at approximately 3:00 p.m., except for Nanaimo which will have two sessions one in the morning and one in the afternoon.

Should the afternoon session in Nanaimo not get a minimum of 8, we will be moving you to the morning session and your session will then be 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. with the additional training.
