Letter from the President
Happy Holidays to the St. Louis Chapter! As per tradition, we don’t hold a regular chapter meeting in December but we are hosting HRATEC on December 18th. As always, this year’s HRATEC will be full of interesting topics. The program committee is targeting 7.0 PDH credits to be available for the seminar. Reserve your spot now!
Many thanks to our November chapter meeting speakers, Jay Eldridge and Jerry Williams. We try to offer diverse technical programs of interest members of all career levels. November was a chance to revisit fundamentals for our earlier career members.
I’ll keep it short and conclude by wishing you and your loved ones a happy holiday season!
Jim Rosick, Chapter President
