On the Road with Master Electricians

On the road with Master Electricians

Master Electricians will again be taking to the road with our road show.

Based on the learnings from our trip in 2021 we have updated and improved the On the Road format. We will be stopping at more locations and providing three different kinds of events with top quality content.

Our goals continue to be

  • Engage with our members and the greater industry
  • Provide interesting, up-to-date information which will help members continue having successful businesses in the electrical industry
  • Provide relevant, useful technical education which will help members, and their employees, stay on top of changes in the industry.

On the Road Networking

We know from recent research that electricians want a way to network, connect, and learn from others in the industry – this is important in the lives of electricians.

Our networking sessions are a chance to get together in an informal setting and catch up with the local Regional Manager, members of Master Electricians senior leadership, or Board.

Each session will start with a short presentation from either the CEO or a member of the Board with an update on Master Electricians.

You will then be able to chat with your peers over a drink and some nibbles while finding out what your local committee is doing in the area.

Who should attend: Members and non-members are welcome to attend.  Anyone with an interest in what is happening at Master Electricians.

In some cases these sessions will be combined with the Apprentice Challenge preliminary events.

All networking events will run from 5.30pm.
