President's Monthly Message

Hello SEMPPES Members,

For those of you who were not able to join us, February marked another great dinner and presentation at O'Kelly's Banquet Hall. Ted Marshall of PECO presented on Burner Technologies and covered many advancements in that marketplace. Ted brought a lot of first hand experience to the table and answered many questions from those in attendance. 

Looking forward to the March meeting, we have our annual talk by the State of Michigan. These meetings are always very enlighting and provide an opportunity to speak directly with Keith Lambert, the Director of the Bureau of Construction Codes and Dave Stenrose, of the Boiler and Elevator Division of the State of Michigan. There is typically time for Q & A with Keith and Dave. This year they will also be covering the new procedure on how the bureau processes administrative rules.  This would include licensing rules as well as codes.  Additionally, the Board of Boiler Rules will be part of this process as well as a new approach of gaining input from interested stakeholders and licensees.

We are not only looking forward to Keith and Dave joining us for the March meeting but also this meeting will be our annual event to honor our Past Presidents and specifically recognize Ron Rushing for his contributions over the last four years. Join us for the meeting to help give these dedicated members a strong ovation.  

To celebrate St Patrick's day, SEMPPES will be hosting an open bar and typically O'Kelly's makes a great Irish meal!

We have a full lists of events for the year including our Annual Golf Outing in August along with a second go round on the Detroit Princess Cruise. Please pass along the message to your colleagues to join us for our next event. Whether engineer or supplier, SEMPPES extends an invitation to you to join our organization

I look forward to seeing you at the meeting, 

Joseph Ham
