AFE St. Louis Newsletter !


Please support your local chapter by contacting us.

I am writing to let you know that Frank Kastl , is resigning from his position as chapter president at the end of this year.  Terry Bremer, the current chapter vice president has also stated that he is going back to school, so he will not have the time to assist with chapter activities.

Do not worry.  AFE is making a commitment to help the chapter stay active.  But we need your help to do so.  The chapter is yours, so we are seeking a few members who are interested in taking on chapter leadership roles.  It isn't necessary that one person shoulder the entire chapter responsibility — we hope you will build a local team of members who represent the diversity of AFE membership.  It doesn’t matter what kind of facility you represent — be it a manufacturing facility, a hospital, a school, a hotel, or any other kind of facility — the chapter programming and new leadership will reflect the needs of all the members.

 We have put together an interim team to support the chapter activities.  But the future of the chapter rests with you, the local members.  So if you're interested in being a member of the leadership team, please contact one of the following people.

 Reed Lillard, AFE President-elect — 816-770-2550 (H) -

John Schuech, AFE VP Membership — 913-908-4937 (W) –

Don Fitchett, AFE St. Louis Chapter webmaster — 573-547-5630 (W) –

Kent Klug, AFE 2004 RVP — 913-851-0669 (H) –

Anne Jacobson, AFE Membership Director — 513-489-2473 –

Dottie Mangold, AFE Chapter Relations Manager — 513-489-2473 –

 You don't have to specify what position you're interested in, just let us know that you want to become involved.  With a handful of dedicated individuals working together as a team the workload is shared and much can be accomplished.  You'll have the support of AFE region and national leadership, plus all the resources available to chapters from AFE headquarters. 

 AFE chapters give members a chance to network locally.  You'll find answers to problems, find local resources, build a group of trusted advisors, see local best practices, grow your business, and gain new skills — all in your own hometown. 

 So if you've been thinking about getting involved, now is the perfect time.  Won't you give one of us a call and say you're willing to help your chapter?

2003 AFE President
