I joined the Association in 2014 and dove right into familiarizing myself with my local chapter, DC01. I joined the board at DC01 and began to learn more about our Association and its history. I decided to dedicate my time to N.A.P.E. and join the board on a National level. In 2017, I went to the convention held in Orlando Florida and was voted in as Vice President of the National Association. To get acclimated as Vice President, I traveled to the National Office. I went through the daily routines, went over the fiscal calendar tasks and discussed how they are completed. As membership is the main concern for the Vice President, I discussed with the National Office employees about bringing on membership benefits which you’ve seen rollout through the last year and it is something that the office will continue to review and update.
I am very thankful for all those who voted for me to be the National President. As National President, I plan to bring more exposure to our education by finding trade shows for N.A.P.E. to attend, so we can highlight our new online education.
Our new courses which includes over 1000 interactive lessons was released last month. Be sure to check out the details of the course curriculum and prices on our website.
Keep your eyes peeled for the new Renewables Course which will cover Solar and Wind energy production.
Again, it is an honor to be the National President and I look forward the possibilities the next two years will bring.
George Montany has been a long time member of NAPE NY#6 and has served as an Officer and a Committee member on several committee's with a dedication unsurpassed by most of our members. His knowledge of our Engineering Profession was a resource to many of our young members and George was always available to share his knowledge to other members. He will be missed by us all. He is now free from the suffering he endured over the past two + years and in a happier place as he joins his wife. He leaves a void in Chapter #6 that will not be easy to fill.
