Members in Transition and Training Focus Group (MTTG)


While not a formal committee of the society, MTTG is a growing and strong presence in SLB.  Currently planning their first session at the annual meeting and working on year round support mechanisms for this audience, MTTG focuses on SLB members in transition. The group fills a niche and shows just how important this demographic is to SLB.
