To All ICRI-FWC Members,
It is my honor to have been elected as the President of our outstanding chapter for 2022 as we rise above the Covid pandemic and work towards returning to life as we knew it pre-Covid. I have served several stints on our board of directors dating back to 2008 and have served as Treasurer for 3 years. I hope to call upon my experience and the energy of our new and existing board members to bring the best to our chapter.
Many thanks to our Past-President, Tom Buffington, for his steadfast leadership as we forged ahead through difficult times to hold in-person events during the pandemic. We held many very successful events, perhaps more than any other chapter!
As I look ahead to this year, we have a full schedule of events planned and are hoping for increased attendance by our strong membership base. We started off on January 16 with our Axe & Ale kickoff event with approximately 35 in attendance, the weather was great, and the event was a huge success. Upcoming events include a technical session on shoring, demo day, cigar social, sporting clays tournament, holiday party and 3 more technical meetings.
I would like to offer a special thank you to all our Platinum and Gold Sponsor Companies that have solidified our financial status. Your contributions enable us to host our technical events at Red Mesa, which provides us an exceptional meeting venue with outstanding food and drinks, as well as offer some complimentary events.
Look forward to seeing you all throughout the year!
