Our People:

In the current news, you will hear surrounding counties of St. Louis have an unemployment rate below the national average. You will also hear St. Louis it's self has a rate well above the national average.


Those facts become a little relevance if you work at MEMC, Hussmann, Ford, Emerson, or Charter in St. Louis. Even less relevant if you are currently a laid-off Facility Engineer. This is a call for job leads to help one of our own members. We can show our members and the community we are there for them, in their time of need.


Let's add yet another AFE success story to our legacy. We have beefed up our career resource area in an effort to help. Please email any St. Louis Facility Engineering job leads to webmaster@AFEStLouis.org

The steering committee have a great year planned for us, as well as some tentative plans for all of 2002! (see online calendar

Our City:

Most people do not realize there is terrorism occurring in their own back yard. This is do to the behind the scenes work of  the good people at the FBI, and other law enforcement agencies. We started out helping our readers with resources to secure their facilities from crime.


Then, on a national level AFE.org started a relief fund for those who had fell victim to the attacks.


And now our local chapter gives you the opportunity get your questions answered at our next meeting. Who better qualified then the Security Programs Manager and Supervisor of the Foreign Counterintelligence and Counterterrorism Programs of the FBI St. Louis Division.

We also encourage you to follow up the print version of this newsletter, with a visit to the online version for more details.
