Fall Officer's Meeting Notes 2018
By Dave Collard
The Fall Officer's Meeting took place at Bloomington on Nov. 2, 2018. Present for the meeting were Dave Miller, Ian Magerl, Mike Elsberry, and me. The topics discussed were the date and location of the 2019 Winter Meeting and potential Presenters and/or Topics.
The meeting was held at Cracker Barrel on Brock Drive. This year Dave Miller notified us that the venue would be changing to Hudson Farms in Urbana IL. We discussed the matter and all present agreed that the service at the Garden Hotel was less than acceptable. A vote was taken and passed to move to the new venue.
Dave Miller also suggested to the group to move the date of the meeting to April. The reasoning of this is that the timing of the IAWPCO Conference is very close to our usual meeting date. He thought it too much to ask of members and vendors to hold another meeting so close to the larger conference. The other officers agreed and we are planning to hold the meeting on April 17, 2019. This is approximately the date that IAWPCO would normally hold it's annual conference. The officer's voted to accept the date change and we are hopeful that this will not adversely affect our attendance.
Due to the longer period now given the date change we decided that we would need to wait to schedule presenters until after the first of the year. As that information becomes available it will be uploaded to this website.
If you have any comments or concerns about these changes please feel free to contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will pass those comments on to the other officers.

Sites of Previous Summer Meetings
CIPWO would like to enlist its members' help. The organization has always managed to find interesting and informative speakers for our meetings, but there is always room for more.
With this in mind CIPWO wishes to ask that if in your day-to-day experience of meeting wastewater industry Vendors, Engineers, and VooDoo Witchdoctors if you find one that has information that you think would be well shared with your fellow Operators; pass the word on to an officer. We are always looking for folks with information to share that will help our membership.
Remember, if you find it interesting, then very likely all the other members will find it interesting too.
Additionally, if you are ever inclined to volunteer some time and energy the organization is always looking for fresh blood and new ideas. So, don't hesitate to speak up, and thanks in advance!
