Letter From the President

We're off to the start of a new year already and I want to wish all of you a safe and prosperous journey for 2016. Also thanks to all of you for your participation in ASPE.

November was our last scheduled get together for the Board of Directors meeting, meal and presentation for members and guests. We had a decent turn out with 87% of our board members present. Thanks to Derek and Seamus for hosting the meeting at the The Concord Group office. Great pizza!

Karen Olah from Cold Spring presented a very interesting topic on stone products and the upfront design along with the process of mining from the quarry and delivery to your site.

We look forward to a very interesting topic Jan 21 at Barbakoa in Downers Grove. See the information below to register.

This year let's reach out to other construction people who may be interested in attending some of the monthly presentations or becoming a member of ASPE.
