August 2020

As of today, we will still not have an in-person chapter meeting for the month of August 2020 due to the COVID 19 pandemic. We had 37 members and guests who joined an online presentation during the July 8, 2020 Chapter meeting.

On behalf of the ASPE-LA Board of Directors, I would like to thank Mr. Greg Swafford, CPD, GPD, Technical Sales Manager, GF Piping Systems Americas. In his presentation, he presented the water issues in the building, method of managing the risks and emergency smart technology. If you have any questions about his presentation, please contact him at
