Here are the Out of Town Work Updates and recent additional requests from our members in regard to possibilities of work in other locals across the country. Most locals are in the same situation that we are and at best expect to pick up in the Spring and Summer. We have also been asked to check on work that will be available in Haiti, which we have included here.
The best bet for us seems to be one of the closest locals
