ASSE Illinois chapter

President's Message
December 2018 / January 2019


Happy New Year!

Hope you all had a good Holiday.

I would like to thank everyone that came to this years ASSE Illinois Chapter product show. Thank you to all of the vendors! Not only did they help support us they went that extra step and donated door prizes. Keven Phelps had every one’s attention when calling out the winning numbers for the door prize. A very big thank you to all of the board members that were at the school at 1:30 pm to help set up so we would be ready at 3:00. Their leadership and stepping up is what made this year’s show a huge success.

I want to apologize for no December newsletter or meeting, this was due to my office move and family holiday. Thank you to all of the board members and ASSE Illinois Chapter members for your help this year.

In the coming week, we will have a board meeting to get nominations for new officers’ election, address the international‘s annual request for information, review new by-laws and set the date for the next full membership meeting. (We will need a full membership meeting to vote on any by-law changes, and board nominations.)

I have included links to ASSE international meeting in Ft Lauderdale in October along with their Facebook page and twitter page and home page.

Don't forget your contribution to the ASSE 2019 scholarship fund. This year’s raffle raised enough funds for the ASSE to award 8 scholarships totaling over $17,000. Most of donations from Illinois chapter members that go to the fund scholarship come back to families of Illinois chapter members.

For any new memberships, please go to http://www.assewebstore.com/membership. Become a member of ASSE International today!

If you know someone that is not receiving the newsletter and would like to get it, send their e-mail to this e-mail Ilchapterasse@gmail.com.

Thank you,
GO BEARS!

Fraternally yours,

Denis Riordan
President, ASSE Illinois Chapter
