This is a question for some of the more senior members of the board. How much consideration do you think is given to the local IA that a technician got his card from? In other words, if I got my card from IA Local #34562 and that local had a less than shining reputation, would that reflect badly upon me? Obviously, if you're coming from a good local that can no doubt be helpful in finding work or transferring elsewhere, but is the opposite true? If all other things were equal (you're skill set, attitude, lack of body odor, etc.) would coming from a crappy local work against you? I realize answers will be completely subjective, but that's sort of what I'm looking for.
