ASSE Illinois chapter

President's Message
November 2018


Veterans Day on Sunday 11/11/18. I would like to thank all military veterans of the ASSE and especially the veterans from the Illinois Chapter for their service to this great country. We are proud to stand beside you.

Recently, I gave a presentation at the ERTC backflow symposium in Bloomington, IL. It was good to see IL Chapter board member Pat Flader and officer Joe Sowa attendance along with many other members. Thank you for your support.

By now, every member of Plumbers Local 130 has received a letter from Business Manager, Jim Coyne. This letter sent by Mr. Coyne is to informed members that the monthly meeting was moved to November 20th at 6:00 pm. He also promoted our product show that runs from 3:00 to 5:30pm (right before the general meeting) in the new apprentice training building. I hope to see all of our members at the product show. Feel free to bring a co-worker or a retired member with you to the show. It would be great to have a strong attendance of our members - especially from our officers and board members. I would appreciate any and all help at the show. We will need volunteers at the door to collect the $5 entry donation as well as names and emails of attendees. We also need volunteers sell tickets to the 50/50 raffle and work the beer table. Vendors set-up is from 12:00pm to 2:30pm – I plan to be there about 1:30pm. This is always a great fundraising event for us. See you there! I am looking into the requirements to register with the IDPH so we can offer 2-hour CEU classes. Hopefully we will be able to work with our partners within the Plumbing Industry and offer classes early in 2019.

We are wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving! Safe travels to you and your family whether you are crossing the country or go across town.

Fraternally yours,

Denis Riordan
President, ASSE Illinois Chapter

P.S. We are not offering the Vendor Spotlight this month as we want to focus on all our vendors at the product show. Look for the member spotlight and the vendor spotlight to return in our next newsletter.
