ASSE Illinois chapter

President's Message
July 2018


Happy summer to all!,

Remember that in a little over a week, on Saturday, August 25th, is the annual ASSE picnic. Please pass out the flyer and tell a co-worker or friend in the plumbing industry.

Recently, I had a very positive meeting with Local 130 Business Manager Mr. Coyne. We talked about the ASSE and discussed ways we could increase the ASSE Illinois Chapter membership as well as increase involvement of suppliers, manufacturers and Plumbing contractors. He agreed that getting the apprentices involved will be a great start. He had many other suggestions and he pledged his and Plumbers Local 130’s full support to our chapter to help us succeed. There will be more information about this in future newsletters. Business Manager Coyne and Plumbers Local 130 also generously donated two sets of 4 White Sox tickets (another reason you don’t want to miss the picnic).

I plan to continue the member spotlight that past President Randy Olson started in each issue of the newsletter. This month’s spotlight features Michael Scherer. Starting in our next newsletter, we will also spotlight one of the companies that advertise and supports our efforts.

Please save the date of 11/20/18 for our annual product show. Based upon feedback from Brian Mazzocchi and past vendors, the show will be held, once again, in Plumbers Local 130 apprentice school.

Thank you all for what you do for this organization!

Fraternally yours,

Denis Riordan
President, ASSE Illinois Chapter
