The February 21, 2019 meeting was held and sponsored by IPS at 111 E. 10th. Street, Litchfield, MN. We started with a light meal around 6:00 PM then the presentation at 7:00 PM followed by a tour of the motor/generator repair shop at 8:00 PM. The presentation will be given by Phillip Golden P.E. who is the President of the Golden Industrial Refrigeration Company in Milwaukee WI. The topic is "How New Reforms in Industry Regulations Affect You". He will touch on Key Terms, Time line for certain Acts enacted, How the General Duty Clause effect us, the Executive Orders and National Emphasis program, IIAR Arm Program, OSHA and EPA inspection and fines, and preparing for a OSHA or EPA visit. It will be busy packed hour.
I think Bret is running out of spare tickets to give to us for us to sale.
The prizes consist of a Pellet Grill, an Under Water Camera, an Amazon Fire, and several gift cards. The drawing will be held in May at the Refrigeration Awareness Day. As the winning tickets are pulled keep in mind the person that sold the winning tickets for the top 3 prizes win $200 (there will be no payout for the sales person for the winning tickets for the gift cards).
Speaking of door prizes we are going to be trying something for a couple months to see how it goes. We will be getting a larger dollar prize and just having a drawing to give it away at the meeting. There will be no cost for this. You will be given a ticket just for the one prize. The other door prizes will be given away like in the past for a small donation.
When you attend a monthly meeting you have entered yourself for a drawing for $500. We will be given 3 of these away at the Refrigeration Awareness Day in May. So bring a friend, spouse, co-worker, kids, et.
Still looking for help on locations (sponsors) for Monthly meetings.
Contact one of the officers if you are interested.
