Message From The President – February 2020
Dear ASSP Colleagues,
I want to express my thanks to all who helped make our Chapter PDC a successful one this year. Our hosts at AGC provided us with a great meeting space that enabled us to bring our attendees and exhibitors together in one big room. We had a record number of exhibitors this year who added value to our PDC with their on-hand services and expertise.
Of course, we owe a big thanks to our speakers this year. Their presentations gave me new info I could put to use and refreshed me on other vital topics. Thanks to our facilitators with UA SafeState for managing registration and check-in, and to our PDC wrangler, Chapter VP Tom Ten Eyck for his efforts at putting this event together for us. And, most importantly, big thanks to our attendees who make it all worthwhile. We’re off to a great start this year and we’ve got some special things coming your way during 2020. Our whole raison d’etre is to bring value to our profession through education, networking, and – well, sometimes just being there as a support system. Ours is a wonderful and noble profession, but you can also feel like a voice in the wilderness at times…maybe even most of the time. It helps to have supportive friends in the right places. We’re not hard to find – just keep your eyes peeled for our meeting announcements in your email inbox or check our website Events page. This month, it’s the third Friday at AGC Irondale. Hope to see you there!
