The speaker at the November meeting was Paul Brockfield from Mechanical Supply who gave a great seminar covering the newest installation procedures of Weil-McLain ultra-boiler for PEU credits. Thank you Paul for a very informative session!
The board is making plans to host the Annual Mid West Association Conference in March. We need the assistance of you and local businesses to make it a success. If you would like to help in any way, make yourself known to a board member. The conference will take place on March 10th & 11th at Syberg’s at Dorsett and I-270 in Maryland Heights. There will be activities for the women and vendors booths. See Mike Huston & Mike Perotta for information on how you can participate.
There are still positions open on the chapter's board of directors that need to be filled. Hang around after the meeting to see what you can do to help. Keep the chapter going and add line to your resume! The facts are, the “old guys” won’t be around forever and someone’s going to need to step in when we leave if the chapter is to continue. Show them you appreciate the work they’ve done through the years and speak up now before it’s too late.
If your organization has an educational opportunity for our trade coming up, let us know so we can share it with our membership so that all can benefit.
We are always interested in your ideas for speakers and topics.
Contact a board member and let them know what your interests are.
