“We have been members of PET for many years and may I say how valued this membership is to us.  The staff have always been very dedicated to their task.  We have needed their advice on a number of occasions over the years when dealing with complicated employment issues.  The support given has been critical to resolving issues that may easily have overwhelmed us.”
