June 2024

Last month, we had a joint meeting with the LADWP (Los Angeles – Department of Water and Power) at LADWP’s La Kretz Innovation Campus. Total of 92 people attended, and 50 ASPE members. Most of the nonmembers are for Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety, LADWP, County of LA, the Gas company, IAPMO and more.

I would like to thank our speaker Christoph Lohr from IAPMO, who presented the IAPMO’s Water Demand Calculator. This was a great presentation. Q and A are also very interesting. Also, I would like to thank Amair and the LADWP La Kretz team for the two tours inside the campus.

I want to remind our members, for this month’s June 12 meeting, we are back to the Burbank location. The presenter is Mr. Marco Deangelo, Account manager from Arkema. He will present the “PVDF Corrosive Waste Drainage system and Plenum Considerations”.

We are planning to celebrate our 60th Anniversary of the founding chapter at the October meeting.

This month the new officer will be sworn in. This year, all officer positions had one, so no election was required.

Our next golf tournament will be tentatively on June 14, 2024. We want all our members to come and join. If you have questions regarding golf, please let me know.

 If you are planning to go to the 2024 ASPE Convention and Expo at Columbus, Ohio, registration is open and book your hotel as soon as possible. The event is scheduled for October 18 through 23. The Convention will be held on October 18 to 23 and Expositions will be on October 21 to 22.

We are starting to prepare for the selection of the chapter delegates for the Convention. Same as every convention the selection of delegates based on the attending record of active participation in monthly meetings. We are having a total of 9 delegates, along with one alternate and one young professional, demonstrating a thoughtful approach to representation.

Encouraging members to share specific topics or ideas for events shows a commitment to making the anniversary celebration meaningful and engaging for everyone.

If you have any suggestions to learn the subjects, please let us know.
