President’s Corner – February 2015


There is a saying in sports “it’s not how you start what matters; it’s how you finish”. In other words, the outcome of the competitive event is what matters. For our chapter, it’s not the start or the finish alone; the start the middle and the finish matters. We got off to an excellent start to the year with a great attendance to our January meeting despite terrible weather and even worse traffic the date of our meeting. We strive to provide quality programs and sponsors for our members and non-members every month and we will continue to do that for every single meeting.

It was great to see how many members showed interest in helping with the efforts in connection with the organization of the 2015 State Conference to be held in Houston, Texas October 22 and 23, 2015 at the Houston Hilton North located within ten miles of George Bush International Airport. Our past president Steve Wilkerson is leading the efforts in connection with the State Conference. Please reach out to Steve at swilkerson@apexstrucengg.com to offer your assistance.

We also welcome your suggestions regarding programs for the State Conference or any other business of our chapter. I have received several questions regarding how to apply for membership and membership benefits. Please contact Glen Smith at Glen.Smith@ptcforensics.com for any questions regarding membership.

I also want to take this opportunity to inform you that in addition to our monthly meetings, we are planning special sponsored presentations/education programs to be held during the lunch hour. These events are typically free to our members and a free meal (as well as continued education) are provided. We want to provide our members different options for continued education through our chapter. Additional information regarding upcoming special education programs will be announced during our monthly meetings – stay tuned. If you are interested in volunteering, please feel free to contact any of the officers listed at the end of the newsletter.
