UPEA Whirlwind Tour – Upcoming Event Schedule

After a long year full of heavy workloads and very little face-to-face contact, UPEA staff is setting off on a state-wide recruitment tour to spread the word about the importance of UPEA membership! In true whirlwind fashion, UPEA staff aim to visit over 50 agencies and recruit at least 100 new members over the course of this two-part recruitment tour.

All public employees in each area are invited to attend for food, swag giveaways, prize drawings, and to learn more about the benefits of UPEA membership! At each recruitment event, staff will give retro WHIRLWIND TOUR TEES to all new and existing members!

The first week of the tour took place August 9-12 and was a huge success! Staff visited 33 agencies throughout central and southern Utah, drove 1,039 miles, and recruited 70 new members! The following week on Tuesday, August 17, staff visited 6 SLCo agencies, drove over 50 miles, and recruited 18 new members for the Salt Lake Valley Local Government District – Bringing the Whirlwind Tour recruitment total up to 88 NEW MEMBERS!

Since we are so close to reaching our recruitment goal on the “ROAD to 100” after only one week, we are DOUBLING it and hope to recruit 112 more members during weeks two and three of the Whirlwind Tour. WE NEED YOUR HELP on the ROAD TO 200! See the detailed schedule for WEEK THREE below and stop by the event nearest you! Be sure to bring your coworkers, especially those who need to join UPEA – You’ll receive a $50 recruiter bonus for each member you recruit during the Whirlwind Tour!
