Frank (our Chapter President), returns from the AFE Regional meeting with ...

Exciting news- that our St. Louis chapter 26  is the fastest growing chapter in region 9. Our regional director believes that our success has stemmed from our three goals, we have to have fun, be educational, and network.

Also -with three key areas that we are going to focus development on.
1. Youth education.  We are going to reach out to the area trade schools in the St. Louis area and extend our monthly educational meetings to them. This will be a great opportunity for a youth to see the various types of systems and trades that are available to them.
2. Membership development. To developing a program to maximize our education. This program is designed to develop each member with the latest technology and systems available to date. We will pool from our most qualified venders in the St. Louis area.

3. New Membership. To reach out to the future leaders of the St. Louis area and share our exciting organization with others. This is where end users can have a great education on the latest technology , network with the most knowledgeable people in St. Louis, and have a great time doing it. 


Frank goes on to say ...

 Now that's a beautiful thing. Anyone can have al1 of this for about $15.00 dollar a month.
I am proud to say that we have the best regional leadership in AFE. This is a powerful tool  using our national organization to network with others.
This is why I am so excited  with this type of education I will be able to lower cost for my employer.
