President’s Message April 2014


After surviving the worst winter in over 30 years, let us all welcome spring and let the outside activities begin. As Chief Engineers, spring is the time of year we need to finish cleaning our cooling towers and chillers to ensure our facility is ready for the warmer weather soon to come. Chiller servicing should have been completed by now. If not, please utilize our Associate Members for any servicing and /or supplies you may need to complete this work.

It was great to see such a tremendous turnout at this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Meeting. Every year it seems we squeeze more and more members and guests into this event. A big thank you to the Irish American Heritage Center and Harrington’s catering, your support every year has made this one of our largest events of the year.

The CEAC Board of Directors are working hard on our April Vendor Fair and May’s Monthly meeting in the Warehouse at Carmichael’s. Also, scheduled in May is our annual Vendor Appreciation Dinner on Wednesday May 7th. This year’s Vendor Fair is scheduled for Wednesday April 16th and we are excited to try a new south side location. 2014’s Vendor Fair will be at Gaelic Park in Oak Forest. We are looking forward to enjoying a nice evening checking out the latest technology and industry services with an abundance of vendors.

Vendor Fair Chairman, Dan Carey and his committee are working extremely hard to ensure a good time is had by all. Please see our flyer in this month’s magazine for any address or time info you may need.
May’s Educational Dinner Meeting is scheduled for Wednesday May 21st. This meeting will be at Carmichael’s in the Warehouse and is also one of the largest meetings we schedule. At this meeting, we will have our annual Harley Raffle. Please see any Board of Director for your raffle ticket. The cost of the raffle tickets are $ 100.00 each and they sell out very quickly.

Another way to keep our membership and organization growing is to utilize our Associate members when completing projects in your facilities. Reference the Quick Shopper or visit our website. Please remember to tell the Associate members you found them through the Chief Engineers Association.

And finally, let’s not forget the men and women serving our nation for our freedom and protection. Please keep them and their families in your thoughts and prayers.

I look forward to seeing everyone at our upcoming meetings and events!

Jim Cacciottolo
