SOMETHING TO CONSIDER - Do you know that attendance at a Chapter meeting will earn you Professional
Development Hours (PDH)? Attendance is one PDH per hour of technical session. A presentation is 2 PDH's per
presentation hour. Also serving as an officer (board member) earns 2 PDH's per year.
We need participation and input from everyone involved to keep this chapter strong!
Members and vendors are needed to present case histories, new technologies, analysis techniques, and other related
topics during chapter meetings. All should focus on improving maintenance practices or on enhancing maintenance
related programs. All presentations must be void of product promotion. If you or someone you know could make a
presentation at one of our future meetings, contact one of the Program Chairmen today! Also, please let us know of any
ideas or suggestions for presentations.
