President's Corner

From Matt Orr, President

While another year is almost behind us I want to thank everyone for their help and participation.  We had some great speakers and tried to change it up a little from previous years.  We decided to try a Breakfast Meeting and had great results and feedback.  We did this in June when we usually don't hold a meeting due to AIHce and still brought in a considerable group.  We also tried a plant tour at Ameren's Labadie Energy Center.  We had a great turnout and several requests to try and schedule another one next year.

We tried to do more this year to increase member participation.  We made the newsletter more interactive and made it easier to register for meetings through Eventbrite, the newsletter, and our social media outlets.  We updated the Facebook page and added a Twitter account as well. 

We are already planning the next PDC on March 5th, 2018 so save the date!  We are still interested in speakers so if anyone has any suggestions or knows of anyone willing please let us know.

Tomorrow we are holding our Membership Appreciation night at Bar Louie in St. Charles.  It's not to late to register and should be a great time.  With the holidays upon us remember to be safe and spend time with your loved ones.  I wish everyone a great holiday season.


We asked, you answered and we have made improvements to the PDC 2018!
We are scheduling quality speakers for the following tracks:
  • Industrial Hygiene 
  • Safety 
  • Environmental / Emergency Response / Public Health 
Will have up to 15 specific topics suggested sessions include:  
Fleet Accident Analytics
Emergency Response
Environmental Response 
Work Comp Updates

Online registration soon!
