Fellow Phoenix ASPE members,

Fellow ASPE Phoenix Chapter Members,
First off I wanted to thank you for your support in allowing me to go to Atlanta and represent you all during the ASPE Business Meetings.  It was a great opportunity to go to Atlanta, represent our chapter (you!), and network with our colleague’s and counterparts across the country which all gathered in Atlanta.

At the business meeting we covered a large number of items – the biggest highlights that regard to you all is as follows:

Overall, I am absolutely exhausted from an exhilarating and fast-paced 6 days in Atlanta.  Almost every night there was some kind of event or dinner get-together going on – it was incredibly easy to network and make new contacts. 

For our newest members, think about joining/running for a board position – the demographics of who attends these conventions continually gets younger – I feel that I saw many more AYP’s there this year than I had in Phoenix, or Montreal.  Feel free to come talk to me for more information.

In either case, I look forward to seeing you all this October for our next chapter session, this one will be on Grease Interceptor sizing with Jim Pappas (City of Scottsdale) – should be a great session!

Very Respectfully,
