 President's Message 

December 2018

At the last Board of Boiler Rules meeting on November 1st, Chief of Inspections Ed Kawa presented Brother Ray Archambault with a plague recognizing his 35 years of service to the Board.  Ray has volunteered his time and knowledge to shape 522 CMR into the regulations it is today.  On a personal note Ray and I drive to these meetings together and I have to come to know he is the best resource the state has on the history of the regulations.  He remains sharp as ever on the code.  Pictured below is Ray with Deputy State Fire Marshal Maribel Fournier and the Board.  Join me in thanking Ray for his dedicated service our trade.

Brother Fontaine presented a budget draft at our last meeting.  He will bring a finalized version at the December meeting to be voted upon.  Please plan on attending to gain a thorough knowledge of the financial status of the Chapter.

Finally, the Chapter will be going to the Lusitano Club on December 8 for our annual Christmas Party.  The club, located at 385 Windsor St, Ludlow, MA will be hosting a small business Christmas Party starting with a social hour at 6 pm and dinner at 7 pm.  The cost is $65 per person and includes open bar, dinner and a DJ.  If you’re interested in attending please respond to the National Office by November 29.  Payments can be made by check or credit card.  Hope you will join us!

Merry Christmas to you and your family,
