weeks for your reply. Please submit a question, and myself and/or other

We start this
month with good news. Our fellow member Mike Pentecost is no longer
unemployed! As you know, last month we beefed up our "Career"
area in respond to Mike being a victim of employee cutbacks.
Mike wants to
send a special thanks to all those members (both local and
internationally) who helped him out in his career search. This months
meeting will be his last in St. Louis, as his new position will take him
to Chapter 159 in Virginia. Let's give him a worm send off.
This month we
have two future members who are also looking for a new employer. Please
email the webmaster or contact one of our members if you have any job
leads for a very qualified Facility Manager or Construction Engineer.
Thanks to all
those members who are pulling their resources to help our fellow
facility engineers with job leads.
