New Facebook Page

Midland, Michigan - June 06, 2017 - Were you in a Sadara-related role located in Saudi Arabia? Would you like to connect with others who have also returned from such assignments? Were you part of the SANDS Facebook community when you were in Saudi Arabia?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you – and your accompanying spouse – are eligible to join this new private Facebook page.

Called “SANDS Alumni,” this page is designed to help you maintain and strengthen the social communities you built during your assignment in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). Many of you returned to the same areas while many others want to stay connected with friends who relocated to countries around the Dow world. Helping you maintain the cultural bridges you built as a vibrant expatriate community is an important priority of Dow.

Current Dow employees who have returned from KSA or are preparing to return are also being invited to connect through the SANDS Alumni page.

Start connecting! The SANDS Alumni Facebook page is ready for you to start conversations on your experiences and stay in touch!

If you would like to join, please send an email to Benedick del Villar at with your and your accompanying spouse’s (if applicable) personal email address to receive an invitation to join and a “how to” document to help you get started. (If you don’t already have a Facebook account, you will need to create one.) Please share this email address and information with other retirees and their accompanying spouses who have already returned from KSA.
