President's Corner

From Richard Shoaf, President

Hope everyone enjoyed a nice summer.  Lots of exciting things happening at the national level and hope you all are on Catalyst.  If not, it is a great forum for sharing information and engaging other professionals.    

This month President Elect Rachael Phillips and Director Chris Merli will present a brief overview monthly meeting.  After that we will have the opportunity to listen to Dave Schau talk on Asbestos Dose Reconstruction.  You can register for the class here:

Chris Burgoyne will speak on Arc Flash and to close out the year we will have our member appreciation night at the Trailhead in St. Charles starting at 4pm on Dec. 6th.
