John Zagorski
V.P. Membership
May 2020

I have no new members to announce this month.  I believe this will be my last newsletter article as most of you are aware that I will not be running for a board position in this year’s election in May. I’ve been your VP Membership for 18 years running and it’s time to say goodbye. When I started this journey, Vivian was our President and I’ll be ending the journey with Vivian being President. It was an absolute pleasure being able to serve on the BOD twice with her!! I will continue to support this fine organization and plan on attending the monthly dinner meetings as soon as we’re able to start them up again. Thank you all for many years of support!!

Here’s the latest & greatest membership deal: with a 2-year commitment, all new members will receive 4 free dinner meetings! Upon joining for the first year, you will receive 2 free dinner meetings & when you renew for the 2nd year, you will then get 2 more free dinner meetings! Sponsors of new members will also continue to receive a free dinner meeting when you bring the new member to the meeting with their completed application & payment.

Should anyone need a current membership application, please do not hesitate to contact me as your VP Membership at You are also welcomed to call me at 562-447-4561.

A special thank you to those who joined us for the first ever online ASPE meeting on Wednesday, April 1st @ 6:00pm. This was a CEU presentation on “issues Plaguing Today’s Water Systems – Pathogen Reduction Control”

We had 28 attendees wherein 14 needed CEU’s. For those that were signed up for CEU’s and have not received them yet, please contact me and I’ll follow up with Chris @ Oasis.

My guess is that the May meeting will be cancelled however, an official announcement has not come out yet.

I hope everyone is staying Safe & Healthy through these strange times we’re all experiencing!
