Greetings Members!

The summer season is almost upon us. We recently finished our Central and North chapter conferences and both were successful thanks to you. It is always great to see members hugging and talking about the old days. Yes, we put the conferences together to offer membership CEU's but what I like to see is members having fun and going out to lunch or having drinks together that night. Many thanks go to Justin Dwyer and Kathi Landow for putting them together along with the help of many others. Reminder; South chapter's conference will be in September and the AEC in November.

I have begun planning for the South chapter conference and the AEC. Some of the topics will be Ethylene Oxide (Sterigenics), Measles Outbreak (Lake County), MN and TN Centers of Excellence, CBD and Cannabis, EPA's RRP rule, FDA Special Processes, Legionella and others. Email me directly if you have speakers that you think membership can benefit hearing from.

Reminder; as part of our giving back to the community, this year's initiative will be volunteering to be on a bone marrow donation registry. You will see an email coming to your inbox regarding "Be the Match". In short, they are a bone marrow donation program to help people with various blood cancers such as leukemia and lymphoma. A simple swab of your inner cheek and you volunteer to be in the registry and help to save someone's life.

Lastly, we have open positions on the Board if you are interested. If you want to shadow one of us and learn the position before becoming a member that's fine too. Let me know at davidb@hoffmanestates.org.

Take Care
