President’s Message

Greetings Members,

  What a great day we had for the annual barbecue event at Local 399 for the May meeting! Perfect weather, delicious food, and the fantastic sounds of The Boils truly made the evening a success. I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge our wonderful sponsors for the evening, Able Engineering, Air Comfort, CAT 5 Restoration, F.E. Moran, Neuco Inc and W.J. O’Neil. We are lucky as an organization to have such dedicated members who support our events through sponsorship and attendance.

Also at the May event we pulled the winner of the Harley Raffle. Pete Coyle was the lucky winner this year! Only a limited number of tickets are sold for this raffle, providing participants with pretty good odds. Thank you to all who bought tickets. Proceeds from this raffle are allocated toward providing valuable events for our members as well as contributions to the scholarship fund for college students and trades certifications.

While we take a break from our regularly sponsored events during the summer, the board members still meet monthly to continue planning for the months ahead. If there is any feedback that you would like to provide to improve our offerings, please feel free to reach out to myself or to any of the board members. You can also reach out to Alex Boerner ([email protected]) and she will bring the feedback to the board. To submit your feedback anonymously, please visit the ‘Comments and Suggestions’ link on the website.

During the summer, we are also hard at work on the 78th Annual Golf Outing. Sign-ups are open and we are taking reservations, please email [email protected] to participate! This is our largest event of the year, filling all four courses at Cog Hill Golf Course. One of my favorite events of the year, this outing is great for networking and seeing your best industry friends.

In closing, I would like to remind you to utilize the Associate members for your maintenance and repair needs. They are such important resources and leaders in the industry. We are lucky to have them as valued partners of the organization.

Have a great start to the summer!


Daniel T. Carey
