Dear SFPE San Diego Chapter Members and Affiliates,
I want to thank all of you for making our chapter a success this year. I especially want to thank the board members in making sure we had successful meetings every month. It is no small task organizing successful meetings and I could not have done it without them. Next year we will continue our success and will reach out to new individuals that are be interested in joining our organization that share our goal in protecting this city from fire.
From our last meeting, we approved our new by-laws which now reflects what we are doing as a chapter. We also voted to Ariel Nunez as Secretary and Roland Gutierrez as Membership Chair to both to continue another year. We hope in this upcoming year we can find others who are interested in serving as part of the board. If you are interested, we encourage you to reach out to the chair and myself.
This summer, we are planning on a couple of informal events to keep us engaged through this busy summer. Keep your eyes open for announcements of these events. One event is a trip to the San Diego State University Combustion research lab. Other events will be a social gathering at one of the many local breweries.
This summer, the board will be working to make some changes in the coming year. We will be revising our Sponsorship program to entice sponsors helping our chapter become even greater. Additionally, in an effort to spread the outreach of the Fire Protection Engineering field, we are palling on putting together a program for the local Engineering Colleges.
Have a Safe and Wonderful Summer,
Derek Duval, SFPE SD Chapter President
