President’s Message

June 2017

President’s Message:
Just returned from the annual Region 3 presidents meeting where Rob Shorey and myself attended. It was great to meet face to face with the other Region 3 chapters and a few select Society board members (Billy Smith our Executive Director and Vinny Falkowski our VP Membership). We had great conversations and dialog.

At the meeting the West Coast Chapter was presented with a 2017 Director’s Award in recognition of the chapter’s financial contribution to the ASPE Research and Education funds and continued community outreach participation. So congratulate yourselves because without your support we as a chapter could not of accomplished this.

Vinny Falkowski presented many great ideas and programs for membership which you will be seeing coming to fruition in the near future, so stay tuned and you won’t be disappointed.

If any of our female members are interested in attending the 2017 Technical Symposium in Montreal, there is a Women of ASPE (WOA) 2017 Technical Symposium Scholarship, for more information reach out to myself or go directly to

Well its here, the last month we meet before the summer break. As mentioned before, the Board will be meeting in July for a special meeting to plan for the 2017-2018 year, so if you have any ideas, suggestions, or comments please get them to myself or Rob Shorey by the end of June. Remember, these are your meetings and we want to provide you with topics you want to hear.
