If you weren’t there, You missed it! Thank you to Art Sanders and his magical mystery tour of the Capitol Dome restoration. The presentation included personal experiences of the project as well as Architect of the Capitol videos. One item of interest was the locking screw device used to bridge a crack in the cast iron or to marry a cast iron patch with existing material.
We have stepped into the present. (Future, or maybe out of the past for some of us.) Our Board member Erin Kesegi, tackled with great success in creating the social media sites we have been looking for. Her knowledge of the process was presented at our March Board meeting so graciously hosted by Bruce Wujcik at Svigals+Partners. Erin walked us through the creation of our chapter Gmail address which then led us to the sites for social media. We are now present on Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin and Twitter.
The Institute has deferred renewal of dues for three months. Whereby the Chapter has followed along. Contact the Institute for further information.
It seems as though our success of hosting a Region Conference has to be carried forward at a later date. The Boston Chapter has postponed the Plymouth, Massachusetts conference to a date to be selected. At that time, we will be able to gather and gain the information which we use in our profession. Region Conferences are a great way to interact with other chapters in the region. We should have several Stay Home, Stay Safe stories to share.
Congratulations to our newly elected officers. Bruce Wujcik will lead the chapter into FY21. Ross Spiegel will be in charge of all our vices. Welcome to Mark Convertito as a new face on the Board. Thank you to Jay Strother, secretary and George Rosamond, director (Spiegel’s vacancy) for your dedication to the chapter.
In closing, I hope this message finds you in good health. I look forward to again raising a glass with our chapter members at monthly meetings.
Bill Selski, CSI, CDT
President, Housatonic Chapter
